My 7 year old niece will come here in toronto with a visitor visa and we are planning to let her stay for a couple months.

I am wondering if its possible for her to go to a public school in toronto without getting her a study permit?

And where do i go to register for her enrollement ?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some detailed information regarding what the options are on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website in the Find out if your child needs a study permit section.


Here is an excerpt,



A minor child of a parent who is not authorized to work or study in Canada (for example, their parent is authorized as a visitor) is not eligible to study in Canada without a study permit. These minor children must apply for a study permit from their country of last permanent residence.



In the Find out if your child needs a study permit section, you can also find a helpful table that summarizes whether a minor child needs a study permit to enroll in a school.

It is important to note that as a visitor, she will likely have to pay tuition fees in order to attend school.

You should contact the school board you are interested in directly.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
