Visa & Permits in Canada

Study Permit

As an international student studying for longer than 6 months, you will need a permit to study in Canada. Your study permit is not a visa. You also need a visitor visa or an electronic travel authorisation (eTA) to enter Canada.

Make sure to include the college Designated Learning Institution (DLI) number when applying for your study permit.

  • Oxford International College Halifax DLI number: O267638647882

Co-op Work Permit

If your study includes a co-op or work placement, all international students are required to apply for a co-op work permit and study permit. Students must have Co-op work permit before the start date of the program.

Because of current processing delays, students are advised to submit the application for a co-op work  permit at the time filling out the study permit.

This document will allow you to work full time during  your co-op work placement and you need to present the permit before your co-op component starts.
