International students need a valid study permit from the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or Canada Embassy in order to studay at CCATCM. In order to apply for a study permit, you require an acceptance letter from a designated learning institution, which is a school approved by a provincial or territorial government to host international students. CCATCM is both an approved and designated learning institution (our DLI no is O250138504947). Please visit www.canada.ca for more details about a study permit.

An applicant whose primary language is not English must demonstrate a command of the English language sufficient to meet the needs of classroom instruction, written assignments, and exams.
