Canadian Student Visas in great demand among Indian Students, says a new report

September 2013, 16

It is clear that there has been a remarkable surge in the number of Indian students planning to study in Canada in recent years.  A reported figure of 3,000 applied for a Canadian student visa in 2008 but that was quadrupled to 12,000 applications by the year 2010.  The trend continues with possibly as many as 25,000 Indian students likely to apply in 2013.  This is an astonishing demonstration of interest, I am sure that you will agree. 
Canada immigration
One might wonder just why there are so many students hoping to go to Canada and there are a number of reasons why this is so.  The Canadian government are doing a great deal to encourage students to go there with friendly visa policies and “fast-tracking of applications helping to smooth the way.It can take as little as 15 working days for an application to be processed, with only a matter of three weeks being the upper time limit.  A study permit costs INR 5,470, plus processing charges.
Canada permits international students to work while on a course of study, either on or off-campus and there is no need for a work permit if you work ON campus.  However, there is a requirement for a permit if you work OFF campus and students are limited to 20 hours work per week during term time.  Even better is the opportunity to gain work experience with the study program – this is available to some students, though not all.  Internships or unpaid volunteer work schemes (known as practicums) are common with Co-op placements offering work experience which is relevant to your subject of study. These require you to possess both a Study Permit and a Work Permit.
Naturally some Indian students will wish to remain in Canada after graduation and the good news is that the Canadian government actively encourage immigration.  There is a Post-Graduation Work Permit Program which offers you a work permit for a period of time equal to the duration of your course, for a maximum of three years. A one-year course of study qualifies for a one-year work permit program, and so on.  A key stipulation of this program is that you must apply for it within 90 days of graduation.  Indian students hoping to remain in Canada on a permanent basis can take advantage of the Canadian Experience Class immigration program which encourages international students graduating from Canadian universities to take up temporary residence, or even become permanent residents of the country.  Permanent residency rules require a graduate to have worked for at least one year in Canada with a valid work permit.
