Designated learning institutions list

Designated learning institutions list

To apply for a study permit, you need an acceptance letter from a designated learning institution. A designated learning institution is a school approved by a provincial or territorial government to host international students.

All primary and secondary schools in Canada are designated learning institutions. They aren’t included in this list.

If you plan to attend a post-secondary school, make sure it is on this list.

If the school you are studying at loses its designated learning institution status after you get your study permit, you can:

  • keep studying your program until your current permit expires,
  • but only renew your study permit if you enrol at a designated learning institution.

Post-graduation work permit

You need to know if you are eligible to work after you graduate. Not all designated learning institutions make you eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program.

Along with graduating from an eligible designated learning institution, you need to meet all other criteria to get a post-graduation work permit.

The list below will let you know if your designated learning institution offers programs that will make you eligible for a post-graduation work permit.
