I am planning to study in Canada next year. The courses start some time in Sept 2011.
The thing is that I am already in Canada on Work Permit and want to work till atleast May 2011 and take a sabbatical then on.
So, if I apply for the study permit right now, will it cancel my work permit immediately? or will the study permit become valid in Sept only so that I can continue to be on WP until Sept? .. my work permit is valid till end of next year and can be extended if I want to stick to my job .. so if there is any risk in applying for study permit then I will cancel my plans to study next year ..
If I take the sabatical in May 2011 and then apply for study permit, will I be able to get the study permit by sept 2011?
IF you apply for a study permit, when it is issued, it will cancel your work permit.
