Hello,
I applied fro study permit with appendix from CPA Western School of Business and have been refused with the below reason:
"Letter of acceptance states program involves full-time work with part -time studies. Co-op work experience cannot make up more than 50 % of total program of study . Intended program appears to exceed this ."

I contacted the CPA and they said that none of the students have been refused the study permit , the reply as below:
I believe the issue is that they have misunderstood the information in our appendix and think that you are required to do co-op work while taking the CPA preparatory courses. This is not the case. Students are not permitted to record work experience until they have already completed all CPA preparatory courses and been admitted into the CPA Professional Education Program, and even at that time there is no requirement that you work full-time concurrently with your studies. As Kim mentioned in her last email, we are not able to directly contact CIC on your behalf. However, I have written and attached a detailed letter for you that I hope will clarify the details of the CPA program and help you with your application.

Could someone advice how to proceed , how to contact the Immigration offices and if there is any chance to revisit my application based on the clarification from CPA?

I assume you know this is a private college and you will not qualify for a post graduate work permit once you complete your studies. So pretty much zero chances of getting permanent residency in Canada based on your studies.

Scylla is correct on this matter. This school CPA Western of Business is unfortunately not recognized by the CIC as being eligible for PGWP. So I do not understand why do you even bother taking courses there. You could apply for another programs that are eligible for PGWP and do CPA courses online.
