Why study in Canada?
Canada has become one of the most popular destinations for study overseas and for good reason – Study in Canada offers lower fees, best Canadian Universities and best Colleges, almost guaranteed Canada student visa, Easy Canada Immigration process and Super quality of life.
Canada is a very promising country you should look at as your future study or Work Abroad destination. Canada is a very large country and with industry developing at a very fast pace there is a huge shortage of talent, which has resulted in a huge need for immigrants. To promote foreign students to enter Canada the Canadian Government has launched a program called SPP – Student Partner Program which has very easy and streamlined process for Visa approval and Low Fees in Colleges across Canada. Another advantage is the proximity to the US, USA is a neighbor to the US and some analysts are suggesting that because of the Trump Administrations strict policies on immigration certain High Tech industries dependent on immigrants might move to Canada creating a huge need for talented individuals.
In Canada, work rights are available to international students while studying and also upon finishing a degree or diploma.
During your studies
Some Years ago, Canada announced new regulations for international students. As of June, 2014, students do not need to apply for a separate work visa to work off-campus, and are eligible to work as soon as their program of study begins.
Canada provides extensive work and career opportunities for all types of students. Many institutions in Canada offer a co-operative (co-op) education program. This is a structured program where students alternate between periods of work and study. This integrated curriculum is achieved through a partnership between the educational institution and industry.
International graduates from Canadian higher education institutions also have the opportunity to work in Canada for up to three years following the completion of their program.
To work in Canada after you graduate, you must apply for a work permit under the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP). If you would like to look into staying in Canada as a permanent resident after you finish your studies, there are several programs available, each with its own requirements.
Our Team at TOPS can not only help you achieve your dreams of Study Overseas but also guide you on the best course, college or university to select.

SPP Colleges in Canada
The Student Partner’s Program in Canada is regulated by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC). Under this SPP program, selected colleges and universities often termed as the Canadian College Community (CCC), offer admissions to Indian students for undergraduate, post-graduate as well as diploma courses. However, interested students must keep in mind that students with an already rejected visa from Canada are not eligible to apply under the SPP Program. The motive behind the SPP Program in Canada is to make dreams come true for the students who wish to receive education and work in Canada. For this, the SPP Program provides quality education through the SPP Colleges and great work opportunities, thereafter.
In 2009, the ACCC and CIC collectively shortlisted over 46 institutes (Colleges/ Universities) from all over Canada to be featured in the SPP Program. These colleges have been picked from all the different provinces of Canada, be it in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec or Saskatchewan.
Here is a list of SPP Colleges in Canada, listed in the alphabetical order.
The Study permit is deemed valid for only DLI-affiliated institutions in Canada.
DLI number (Designated Learning Institution number) is accorded as a mark of recognition given to a particular school or university, to host international students.
So, in order avail the benefits of the SPP Program, you should be enrolled in a DLI-recognized institution. However, it is by default that most of the colleges and universities in Canada are DLI recognized.
