Connecting with ISIAs

Our International Student Immigration Advisors (ISIAs) are here to help you sort through processes and paperwork.

The ISIAs can help you:

Permanent Residency (PR) Resources

The CIE’s International Student Immigration Advisors cannot advise on permanent residency (PR) and cannot provide assistance with PR applications. 

To learn more about PR, please refer to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website.

Our office works with other institutions (including IRCC) to ensure that students have access to Question & Answer (Q&A) sessions about pathways to PR. The Q&A sessions will be offered throughout the year, usually at least once per academic term. You will be able to register for the next PR session through our calendar of events once it has been scheduled.

The resources below should be reviewed before attending a Question & Answer session. Note: the slides/video available below are correct as of the date they were created. The most up-to-date information is available on the IRCC website.

Students who would like to get professional immigration support are encouraged to seek the services of a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) or a lawyer who is licensed to practice law by a provincial/territorial law society in Canada (and has specific expertise with immigration law).
