Immigration Requirements

Study Permits/Visa

International applicants are strongly advised to check very early for the requirements for study permits and entry visas with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).  Do not wait until an admission decision has been made in order to begin the process of gathering required documentation for studying in Canada.  In some instances the CIC office servicing your geographic region will require proof of English language proficiency in the form of a standardized test (such as TOEFL).  A medical examination and proof of funding may also be required.  Consult the nearest CIC office for the full list of requirements.

For more detailed information on the immigration regulations see the Centre for International Experience website.

 

Guardianship

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) requires that international students under the age of eighteen have a Canadian citizen act as a custodian. The University of Toronto cannot  take on this responsibility. It will be the responsibility of the student's family to satisfy this requirement. The Custodianship Declaration form can be accessed from the Centre for International Experience website.
