Canada is one of the most diverse countries not just in terms of its picturesque landscape but also in terms of its culture and ethnicity. Situated to the north of the US, Canada is the second largest country in the world after Russia in terms of total area, but has a population of only about 35 millions. The scantily populated country has a liberal immigration policy making it a favorite destination amongst Indians for studying and working. This in turn, has helped Canada to become one of the world’s richest nations and an admirable pluralist democracy.
Student partner program or SPP is approved by Government of Canada for Indian Students. This program allows for Indian student to get visa very quickly and with minimum documentation. Canadian Government has appointed few selected Colleges and Universities to get admission under SPP program. Under SPP the embassy will assess the Canadian student visa application considering them of a lowest migration risk. Most of colleges listed under SPP program are Canadian Government funded and offer high level of education.
