Canada will offer international students a new Study Hub service designed to help them start their pathway to permanent residence once they graduate.
The CanadaVisa Study Hub is a new online portal which will link members with a wide range of tools and resources to help navigate the Canadian immigration system.
Members of the Study Hub get access to a wide range of customisable tools and resources to assist them in their goals of Canadian permanent residence.
The personalised Status Tracker follows the user’s study or work permit status, and sends a notification when it is about to expire. Job search and coaching tools help students start building their dream career in Canada. Tailored advice is also available for students considering transferring, or pursuing further studies in Canada.
Moreover, the CanadaVisa School Search and School Match tools provide advice on the best institutions and study programmes to pursue, depending on each individual’s education profile and goals.
Study Hub members will also get exclusive access to a monthly scholarship contest worth CDN$2,500. Each month, one contestant will win the prize, simply by joining the hub and entering some basic details.
The government of Canada supports international students in their efforts to become permanent residents after graduation from a Canadian study program. Recent changes to the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which took effect last November, see points awarded to international graduates in the Express Entry pool for their Canadian educational credentials.
