What is the difference between a Canada Study Visa and a Canada Study Permit?

A Canada Study Visa and a Canada Study Permit are often confused, but they are different. A Canada Study Visa is an official document stamped on your passport demonstrating that you have met the requirements to be admitted as a temporary resident in Canada. It does not authorize you to study or work in Canada.

On the other hand, a Study Permit is a document issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that allows a foreign national to study in Canada for a limited time. However, the Study Permit is not a visa, it doesn't allow you to enter Canada. Students need to apply for both to enter and study in Canada.
