Study Direct Stream Updated Banks for GIC

There's a recent Program Delivery Update by IRCC concerning the new Student Direct Stream and the 
Student Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) Program. As of April 30, 2019, SDS applications are being 
centralized and processed by the Centralized Network (CN), and the service standard for SDS processing is 20 
calendar days and are now processed online. 

They update also provided instructions regarding the GIC. Applicant applying under Student Direct Stream must 
provide proof of a Guaranteed Investment Certificate  (GIC) of CAN $10,000 or more from any bank insured by 
the Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) or any bank listed on the IRCC SDS Web page:

Scotiabank which was the first to offer the GIC Program for applicants from the Philippines. Although listed on the Canadian Deposit Insurance Company Website, 
it is however, no longer listed in the IRCC SDS Web Page as a bank that meets the criteria for SDS. We've sent an inquiry to clarify this. How about those who purchased GIC before April 30, 2019? 
The updates provided information concerning transition from paper application to online until May 15, 2019 but was silent about Scotiabank GIC.

For the meantime, we suggest that you do the GIC using CIBC or any of those listed banks.

Congratulations Mrs.Mary Rose De Leon Balagtas

Ms. Mary Rose De Leon is  one of successful  client of Canadian Immigration Consultancy. She was referred by one of our successful client Ms.Romaldie Castillo under International Student Visa Program who is now in Canada. Ms. De Leon was a victim of “Education Trafficking”,before  She is  in Canada holding
a Study Permit & Visa. Apparently, she left the country without disclosing to her what would be the
scenario right after she finished her studies. Like first her school Arbutus which is not eligible in
Post Graduate Work Permit, secondly she was not informed that she could bring with her family
(spouse and child).

To top it all after she finished her studies and if she could not find a
permanent full time job she has no choice but to go back to Philippines or if she wants to stay in
Canada she needs to study again. Ms. De Leon decided to continue her studies and with the
guidance of Canadian Immigration Consultancy the process of her application became successful
like in choosing the correct program and school, school admission process and new application
for Study Permit.

another part of our conversation when she confirm that she received her study permit :
and finally her visa , the application of RE-ENTRY VISA , mission accomplished

Changes to Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP) Application - February 14, 2019

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) recently published a program delivery update concerning the processing of post graduate work permit program. If you are an International Students or is applying for visa to study in Canada, this is important.

The program delivery instructions have been updated to include a series of facilitative measures, such as
  • the removal of the requirement to hold a valid study permit when applying for a post-graduation work permit
  • the extension of the deadline to apply from 90 days to 6 months
This allows students to have more time to submit their post-graduation work permit application once they obtain their notice of graduation from the school. 

Based on the updated instructions, here are key points regarding post graduate work permit application:
  • Validity: A post-graduation work permit may be issued based on the length of the study program for a minimum of 8 months up to a maximum of 3 years.
  • Eligibility Requirements:  To obtain a post graduate work permit, the applicants must have completed an academic, vocational or professional training program at an eligible institution in Canada that is at least 8 months in duration leading to a degree, diploma or certificate as a Full Time Student.
  • Spouses of PGWP holders: spouse or common-law partner applying for open work permit will need to attach proof that the principal worker (PGWP holder) is employed in an occupation in skill level 0, A or B
  • Ineligible Programs: Students are ineligible for a post-graduation work permit if they have completed the following:
  1. an English as a second language or French as a second language course or program of study
  2. general interest or self-improvement courses
  3. a course or program of study at a private career college 
  • Eligible Institutions: The applicant must provide evidence that the program or programs of study were taken in Canada at one of the following eligible Canadian designated learning institutions (DLIs): 
  1. a public post-secondary institution
  2. a private post-secondary institution that operates under the same rules and regulations as public institutions in Quebec
  3. a private secondary or post-secondary institution in Quebec offering qualifying programs of 900 hours or longer leading t a diploma of vocational studies (DVS) o an attestation of vocational specialization (AVS)
  4. a Canadian, private institution authorized by provincial statute to confer degrees, such as an associate, bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree, but only if the student is enrolled in a program of study leading to a degree, as authorized by the province, which may not include all programs of study offered by the private institution
