Hi everyone, I couldnt find any clear information online. I am a protected person who recieved his Notice of Decision from IRCC. So I am not a refugee claimant anymore. I applied for Seneca College and OSAP. Some people say I need a study permit to study. Some people say I dont need.

When I tried to apply study permit online, application form looks like for international students. It asks my passport expiry date which is already expired 1 year ago since IRCC took all of my ID and passport. It doesnt let me put expired passport date to my study permit application.

So, my question is do I need a study permit as a protected person who already got his notice of decision from IRCC, if so is there any other form to apply study permit for protected persons?

Hello,


Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us. We can appreciate the confusion in this situation.


According to the Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website:


"Protected persons studying in Canada Pursuant to R215(1)(g), protected persons, within the meaning of A95(2), may apply for a study permit from within Canada. However, they must meet all the conditions required of study permit holders as identified in R216(1). The requirement to leave Canada at the end of the authorized stay is satisfied by virtue of R216(2). Protected persons are exempt from the requirement to provide biometric information when applying in Canada for a study permit."


You may wish to contact the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Call Centre directly to see if they have any information they can provide you.

You can contact them at:

1-888-242-2100 (In Canada Only)

You can also submit a case-specific enquiry:
