Canada to introduce “modernised” student visa programme from 2024

Published 24 August 2023

The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will establish a two-tiered structure for Designated Learning Institutions starting in 2024, where some DLIs will be designated as Trusted Institutions.

As part of a larger strategy to modernise Canadian Immigration’s International Student Program, the change means that applicants to Trusted Institutions will receive expedited visa processing. Institutions that meet a certain threshold for such criteria would be designated as Trusted Institutions, although details remain sparse at the moment as the changes are finalised.

"Everything was explained well to me by Vidushi. There was a 100% transparency in everything and Vidushi was highly responsive throughout the process making it smooth and hassle free for me. Rahul from the Visa team also was really patient in the entire process and made sure I understood and get things done timely."
