We offer in-person and virtual appointments and advise on:

  • Immigration: Canadian immigration documents and regulations (e.g. study permits, visas, work eligibility, enrollment requirements for international students)
  • Non-immigration: Medical insurance and the Canadian healthcare system, tax filing, and more

All appointments are 20 minutes in length, if your questions are more complex or require more time your advisor may ask you to book another appointment.

Please note that our international student advisors do not advise on academic-related and permanent residency inquiries.

To learn more about academic advising, see Quick Links.  For information about applying for permanent residency in Canada, please visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada(IRCC) website.
