If your study permit is expiring and you have not finished your studies at the University of Waterloo, you have to apply for an extension. We recommend you apply to extend your study permit 6 months prior to the expiration date.


Starting December 1, 2023, all post-secondary DLIs are required to confirm every applicant’s letter of acceptance directly with IRCC via a letter of acceptance verification process.

As of January 30, 2024 – IRCC has extended the letter of acceptance verification process to include study permit applications made inside Canada.

Please ensure that you order the correct proof of enrolment letter for your study permit extension application to minimize impact on your application.

Our team of Immigration Consultants is here to help you with your application! Please book an appointment with our team for an application review to not risk a refusal on your application. You can book a same day appointment on Portal or contact us via webform requesting an appointment.
