The financial requirements to study in Canada starts at $16,000 for 1 person (first year tuition + $10,000 for living expenses), and for each additional family member that accompanies you to Canada, you must have an additional $3,000 per person.
If you do not have the funds yourself, you can get a letter from a family member stating their intention to support you financially, along with their financial documents.
Candidates who are eager to come to Canada with their family, should consider studying as an option. School programs typically start in September and January each year, but there are some programs that start every 2 months. Students can come to Canada 1 – 1.5 months before their program starts, and their family can accompany them.
There are many schools and programs to choose from; some have IELTS 5, 6 or 7 as a requirement for admission, while others only require a online test which can cost as low as $21 to take.
Our firm has many relationships with schools in Canada and we can help you find a school, apply to a program and gain admission. We will assist you with applying for a study permit, work permit for your spouse, and a student visa (or TRV visa) for your children, if necessary.
