Immigration Support Services

Helping you with your visas and permits

There’s a lot of paperwork to think about when you’re an international student, but we’re here to help. You can contact us before you leave home if you have questions about filling out your study permit or visa applications.

Once you arrive on campus, we can help you:

  • with study permit renewals, visa renewals, new co-op work permits, post-graduate work permits and Social Insurance Number (SIN) applications
  • by contacting Citizenship and Immigration Canada on your behalf
  • by explaining various processes
  • support visa applications for family members coming for convocation by writing invitation letters

Find out more about how we can help you with immigration documents.
