Important: If you don't qualify on the 'Proof of Funds' question, it will be very difficult to apply as an international student at this time.
Each applicant may require a different set of documents depending on client's situation. We prepare the full set of requirements ONLY when the client signs up a retainer agreement with us, as it requires careful assessment of client background to strengthen client's case. We cannot provide the list during the inquiry stage.
In general, the Applicant must be able to provide proof of funds, a Letter of Acceptance from a Designated Learning Institution (we can assist), and other documents proving identity and educational history.
As a rule of thumb, the more funds you can show, the better. In general, an international student requires about CAD$10,000 plus cost of tuition fee (normally in the range of CAD$10,000-CAD$25,000 depending on course and school). The proof of funds must be in a 'liquid' asset form like cash or bank deposits (Liquid means anytime you need them, they can be readily available.). Note, however, that providing enough funds is not the sole basis of study visa/permit approval.
Yes, either yourself, your relative, your company, a scholarship sponsor, or a combination thereof may provide proof of funds.

While there are permanent residence programs, both in federal and provincial level, that offer permanent residence programs to international students who graduated from Canada, there's no guarantee that such programs will be available by the time you graduate. As such, we don't want you to think that permanent residence is guaranteed after graduation.
In fact, most of these permanent residence programs require other key eligibility factors particularly finding a job offer from a Canadian employer (which itself is based on both combination of opportunity, luck & applicant's readiness).
Being an international student can serve as a temporary gateway to Canada, but permanent residence depends on future circumstances that cannot be ascertained today. Be careful with any organization or agency that can guarantee permanent residence after graduation to an international student.
An international student is allowed to work for a maximum of 20 hours per week as long as he/she is a full-time student, or full-time during scheduled breaks subject to off-campus work eligibility (e.g... have started studying and a full-time student).
