7. Is there any chances that SPP will be extended to 2011 ?
8. Give me other details which can helpful for me..
Hope for your best response. Thanks.....
below the details on questions you asked:
1. Pharmacy is a big industry here; you can apply into a lot of courses depending on what interests you. You can have a look into various college's websites to find out the details on the courses offered.
2. Toronto is a main hub here....then there are cities in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) like Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, Hamilton which are well connected to toronto. Vancouver and Calgary are big again in the north.
3. Most colleges require 6 overall in IELTS - you would have the check with the college you want to apply as to what is their criteria. If you have time, i would suggest that you prepare and reappear for the IELTS Exam for a better score. Immigration application with your score might be a hinderance.
4. For post graduate courses, you get the work permit equivalent to the length of the course. If you do a 8 months course, you get an 8 month open work permit. For courses of 2 years and more on a post graduate level - you would get an open work permit for 3 years.
Yes, you can transfer to a different govt. approved college once you arrive here in Canada based on the study permit you get.
5. If you are married and you come to canada on a study permit, your wife is entitled to get an open work permit till you are studying. So in a way you can have her work to support the family financially.
6. Usually immigration offices ask for bank statements 6 months on - how old is the bank account wont really matter.
But they would ask for statements for last 6 months, which would give them a clear history of what's processing in/out from the account.
7. For SPP getting extended for 2011, there is no news from the Candian officials so far.
Below are the articles for you go have a list of colleges participating in SPP: http://www.canadainternational.gc.ca/india-inde/visas/StudentPartnersProgram_ProgrammePartenairesEtudiants-Nov09.aspxhttp://www.cic.gc.ca/english//department/media/backgrounders/2010/2010-01-28.asp#tphp%20idtphp
Hope i have answered all your queries.
Good luck with your application!!
