Evidence of adequate funds (cost of tuition plus at least $10,000 per year for single students; an additional $4,000 with spouse; $3,000 for each additional dependent Note: although these amounts may be sufficient to obtain a Study Permit, most students find that they do not sufficiently cover the cost of living in Toronto.)
Return ticket or evidence that funds will be available for that purpose
Depending on your country of residence, you may be required to undergo a health examination. The immigration officer will issue a document for medical clearance which must be completed and returned.
When all the required documents have been processed, Canadian Immigration authorities will issue a Temporary Resident Visa (if required) and a Study Permit or Letter of Introduction.
If you are given a Letter of Introduction, you should give this to the Immigration Officer when you enter Canada. You will then be issued a Study Permit. In most cases, the Study Permit will be valid for the duration of your academic program, and it should specify the level of study but not the specific university.
Accompanying Spouse and Children
If your spouse and children accompany you, you must apply for their immigration documents at the same time. If your child/children will be attending school, apply for a Study Permit for them. A letter of admission from the school is not required. If your spouse intends to work in Canada, you may apply for a Work Permit for him/her at the same time.
Apply Early !
Receiving a Study Permit can be very time-consuming, particularly because of the time required for medical clearance. Therefore, be sure to apply for a Study Permit as soon as you receive notification of your acceptance from the University.
Extending Your Study Permit
Know when your Study Permit will expire. If your studies require you to remain in Canada beyond the expiry date, you must obtain an extension to your Study Permit before it expires. Apply for an extension at least one month before the expiry date.
New Temporary Resident Visa (Entry Visa)
If your Temporary Resident Visa (entry visa) has expired and you need a new Temporary Resident Visa, you must apply outside of Canada. You may apply for this from the Canadian Consulate in Buffalo by mailing your passport and other documents. Normally, a multiple-entry visa is issued with the same expiry date as your Study Permit.
Working in Canada
One of the conditions governing your entry into Canada is evidence of sufficient funds to cover all expenses. In assessing this, immigration officials do not take into account the possibility that you or your spouse may find work here. While you may be able to find a job and be given permission to accept it, you should not depend on financing your studies and living expenses by working in Canada alone.
Permanent Resident Status (Landed Immigrant )
It is not normally possible to change one's status to Permanent Resident/Landed Immigrant inside Canada. Applications are accepted only at embassies and consulates outside Canada and the process is very time-consuming. If you are about to come to Canada to study, it is recommended that you first come on a Study Permit. Applying for Permanent Resident Status could delay the beginning of your studies.

Homestay is an integral part of a student’s stay in Canada, and our Homestay families are expected to include students in their family life as often as possible. By joining in family activities, students will continue to learn outside the classroom. In some families, there may be more than one student, but not from the same language group.
What students get from the Homestay Program are the following :
The Homestay schedule follows the school calendar. Students may choose to arrive anytime from the Friday before their class starts and stay through until the Sunday after class ends. Any nights outside of these days will be charged extra at the daily rate.
Many International students live off-campus. The Housing Service has a listing of rooms, apartments, and houses which are available for students to rent. Since this type of accommodation is not inspected by the Housing Service, the quality cannot be estimated or guranteed. Therefore, it is very important for students to meet with the owner and inspect the premises before entering into any agreements. Contact the Housing Service for a list of independent residences which are not connected to our Colleges but which are close to the campus.
A variety of accommodation is available in Toronto. Your choice will depend on personal preference and needs and on the amount of money you wish to spend. Off-campus single rooms with shared kitchen and bathroom cost an average of $400 to $600 per month. A bachelor apartment (one room with a private kitchen and a bathroom) costs approximately $600-750. per month. A one bedroom apartment would be approximately $700-1,000 per month and a two bedroom apartment costs approximately $1,100-1,400 per month. Please note, however, that these ranges are subject to change, as rents in Toronto have been increasing over the past year.
The Housing Service and the International Student Centre of the College cannot make any arrangements or reservations for permanent accommodation on your behalf, but staff and volunteers will be pleased to assist you when you arrive in Toronto. You can find housing available within 45 minutes of the campus and within the above price guidelines.
The city of Toronto hosts many special events and, as a result, temporary accomodation can sometimes be hard to find, especially in late August and early September. For this reason, we suggest that you try to arrive before August 24th. You may also wish to call or write one of the accomodations listed below to make a reservation (a credit card will be required to guarantee it). Students whose family will be accompanying them are strongly advised to make advance reservations in a hotel as the University residences and many guest houses are not appropriate for children.
FAIR FUTURE can also assist you on your arrival to make arrangements for temporary accommodation in Youth residence (until late August) or a nearby rooming house. The cost is approximately $40 - 60 per night.
The Housing Service of FAIR FUTURE can send you a list of reasonably priced guest houses and Bed & Breakfasts near Downtown Toronto.
