UPDATED ADVISING HOURS FOR JUNE 25, 2019.

Please note the change in our advising hours for June 25, 2019.

We are trying our best to ensure we provide accurate immigration advise and see as many students as possible during our immigration advising hours. Due to a temporary staffing change, we will be running Information Workshops to address common questions and concerns on a few key permits and visas. Our Immigration Specialist will attempt to cover key points that will be relevant to most applications and situations.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.


For any URGENT CASES, individual advising will still be available.

URGENT cases include:

  • If your study permit has recently expired and you need to renew immediately
  • If you have applied for an extension and your application has been denied
  • Anything with an urgent impact on your status in Canada that needs to be resolved immediately
