When you have successfully gained admission to pursue a program at a Canadian designated institution, you can then apply for a Canadian Study Permit. A Study Permit is a document issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that allows a foreign individual to study in Canada for a designated period of time.

CanadaVisa Study Hub:
The Study Hub is an online portal for students designed to help prospective students, current international students and recent graduates on a post-graduation work permit to easily navigate Canada’s immigration system.
Complete your study program and obtain an open work permit:
Once you have succesfully gained admission to study in Canada, it is important to maintain your status in the country. This may include renewing or changing your study permit. After completing your study program in Canada, a typical path from student to permanent resident status in Canada is through taking advantage of something Canada offers that is more difficult to obtain or not available, in other countries — an open Post-Graduation Work Permit.
This graduation work permit, which allows you to work for any employer in Canada, will be issued after completing your study program and is equal in length to the duration of that program, up to a maximum of three years. However, a graduate who completes a 3 or 4 years program may be eligible for a work permit of 3 years. That is, allowing such a person to remain in Canada of a total of six years.
Become a permanent resident of Canada:
A person that have obtained a Canadian degree, certificate or diploma and has built up a professional experience for him/herself in Canada may have multiple immigraton options through the available federal provincial programs.
Those who are currently ineligible to migrate to Canada can take control of their own destiny and begin the pathway to Canadian immigration through education.
