Canada welcomes more than 350,000 students from foreign jurisdictions each year. If you intend to study at a Canadian educational institution, most foreign nationals must apply for a study permit. A study permit, once issued, allows a foreign national to study in Canada at an approved institute for the duration of the specified course or program.
In some cases, you do not require a study permit to go to school in Canada:
1_If the course or program you intend to study is less than 6 months in duration.
2_If you are a family member or staff of a foreign representative to Canada.
3_If you are a member of a foreign armed force.
To be eligible to study in Canada:

2_You must prove that you have enough money to pay for your :
#living and return transportation expenses for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada
3_You must be a law-abiding citizen with no criminal record and not be a risk to the security of Canada. You may have to provide a police certificate.
4_You must be in good health and willing to complete a medical examination, if necessary.
5_You must satisfy an immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your authorized stay.
A Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) may also be required if the student is a citizen of a country from which Temporary Resident Visas are required for entry into Canada. A Temporary Resident Visa is not required for citizens of visa-exempt countries.
