The Canadian government announced a cap on new study permits for the next two years. For initial study permit applications submitted after January 22, 2024, undergraduate international students must now include an attestation letter from the Ontario provincial government. Current study permit holders, and masters, PhD or other post-graduate program students are exempt from this requirement.

We will provide details about how to acquire the attestation letter when the process is finalized.
