It seems that there are many of you having trouble uploading the latest version of this form :confused:
I used the 10-2017 version when I applied. I didn't have this problem.

Yes, report this technical issue so that they can fix this asap.

In the mean time, you might want to consider submitting a paper based application instead. Or maybe scan and upload the document like what others did.

scan copies are not accepting for online application.
If i submit a paper base application maybe my application takes time to process.
do you have any experience of contacting technical department, how much time they takes to resolve the issue.
is there any contact no. so i can call them?

This is what I'm talking about: https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/urgent-help-imm5257-form-upload-error.546910/#post-6775652

The processing time of paper-based and online application is about the same. We cannot tell which is faster. I saw some people here, who applied by paper, got approved faster than those who applied online. The processing time will depend on which country you are applying from, how many applications received by the visa office, and will also depend on the completeness of your documents.

Hey guys, I kept receiving the following error message when attempting to upload the study permit form: "Error: We couldn't upload your file. Error Description: Make sure you are using the latest application form from our website.". I was sure I was using the latest version of the form because I downloaded it from the website that day so I knew that was not the issue.

After many, many failed attempts at uploading it (using different browsers, computers, PDF readers...), I finally managed to upload it using the following:
  • A PC (Mac did not work for me),
  • the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader version downloaded
  • using INTERNET EXPLORER - this is key. Internet Edge did not work (neither did Chrome, Safari, Firefox)
Using the above, you will be able to properly open the form on the browser (rather than using the "download link as..." as suggested on forums discussing errors with downloading the form in the first place), then you can fill it in there, validate, then save to the computer. It will save as a PDF but you will not be able to open it on the laptop itself - it will actually be an online PDF, which will open using the internet browser only, but that is ok! Upload this onto the site and it will work! :)

Try to open the form with Adobe Reader DC.
