IRCC Improves Processing of Student Applications from Select Asian Economies

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) today announced the Student Direct Stream (SDS), which is available to students applying for a study permit from China, India, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Students from those countries who demonstrate upfront that they have the financial resources and language skills to succeed academically in Canada will benefit from faster processing times.
