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.
