Help for immigration process

ISI helps its students for the immigration process

The Institut supérieur d’informatique (ISI) offers to its students help obtaining the Certificat d’acceptation du Québec (CAQ)* to start the immigration for studies process.

* The government fees of 116$ CAD link to the CAQ demand have to be paid by the student or one of its guarantor.

Once ISI receive the CAQ of the student, an email will be send to the student with a digital copy of the CAQ. The original CAQ will be given to the student once he arrives at the school.

Important information about the study permit (SP) demand

Carefully read the instruction on the Canadian government website before starting to build a SP demand. Select your country of origin to get all the information specific to your country (read here).

Criteria required by the Canadian immigration authorities in short

The student has to meet the criteria required by the Canadian immigration authorities for approval of a SP application, namely:

Demonstrate the legitimacy and coherence of the student’s study project (logical continuation of the academic and/or professional path of the student);

Demonstrate that the student currently has sufficient savings to pay living expenses ($12,000) and tuition fees for the 1st year of study, and prove that the student will have an equivalent amount for its 2nd year of study;

Demonstrate that the student obey the law and has no criminal record (a police certificate may be required as proof);

Demonstrate that the student is in good health (a medical exam might be required);

Demonstrate to an officer of the Canadian immigration authorities that the student will leave Canada when its study permit expires;

Demonstrate that the student has a valid passport for the duration of its studies.

* It is highly recommended that the student pays between 25% and 50% of its tuition fees (fully refundable if the application for a study permit is refused), to use the receipt of this transaction as part of the financial proof.

What is a guarantor?

Guarantor: A person who will pay the student’s tuition and living expenses.

If the student is using a guarantor for its file, it must be a close family member (grandparent, mother, father, spouse, and/or sibling in some cases). The more distant the family relationship, the less likely it is to be successful. This role can be filled by a maximum of two (2) people.

Documents the school must provide the student for the SP demand

Letter of admission

Letter of acceptation

Letter of mandatory internship

The letter of acceptance (which is different from the letter of admission) and the mandatory internship letter will be sent to the student at the same time as its CAQ. The student will then have in hands all the documents needed from the designated learning institution (ISI) and to complete its study permit demand

Note: The student number is given to the student at school when we create the student card during orientation day.

If you have questions about your study permit (SP) demand, you can email the admission service for answers. We’ll try to answer at the best of our knowledge.
