Published: January 3, 2018

Last week CanadaVisa launched the latest version of the Study Hub, a free online resource designed to help prospective students, current international students and recent graduates on a post-graduation work permit easily navigate Canada’s immigration system.

“We wanted to create a community of the brightest, most talented individuals who are dedicated to maximizing their chances of immigrating to Canada successfully and getting the most out of their time in Canada," says Attorney Kara Crudo, who works closely with potential international students at the Campbell Cohen law firm.

"Members of the CanadaVisa Study Hub receive real-time notifications, immigration news and expert help, and can connect with others that share similar goals, allowing them to visualize and proactively prepare their study, work, and settlement pathway.”

The Study Hub is also home to the monthly CanadaVisa Scholarship Contest where one lucky winner has a chance at winning $500.

By joining the Study Hub, members:

  • Stay updated and informed
  • Understand the processes associated with a study permit application
  • Track their immigration status
  • Apply for a post-graduation work permit
  • Map out their pathway to permanent residence
  • Gain a clearer understanding of immigration options

How studying in Canada can be a pathway to permanent residence

Canada recognizes international students and graduates as some of the most desirable future immigrants.

From changes to the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), including the introduction of additional CRS points for Canadian post-secondary education, to an easier pathway to citizenship, the Government of Canada is continuously introducing new ways to support international students in their efforts to gain permanent residence after graduation.

The Study Hub offers user-friendly and accessible tools to help provide a roadmap to permanent residence for international students, who may find the immigration process complicated and confusing.

Whether it is to gain temporary status or to transition to becoming a permanent resident in Canada, the Study Hub is readily available to help members with a step-by-step outline of what is required to make the transition and be prepared for any opportunity to realize their study and settlement goals.
