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.
