May I ask - how did you address your dual intent?Thank you! Yes, it's a Study Permit visa. I applied along with my husband (Open Work Permit for him) and for our kids (Study Permit Minors for each of them).
From what I gather, no need for us to apply for CEC or EE since we have a pending FSE app. Praying and claiming that it will be approved too.
I paid $2,650 for my LOA (Letter of Acceptance) into the school, which will be deducted from my tuition later on. I haven't paid for my one-year tuition fee yet. They are only requiring me to pay for the first term this coming June, and for the next term a few months thereafter. I like that Centennial College's terms of payment are easy on the pocket. Other institutions require you to settle one year's worth of tuition upfront.
First step in applying for an SP visa is to find a DLI (Designated Learning Institution) with a program you're interested in, preferably related to your current line of work. Then, email them to inquire about admissions requirements. If you get accepted into the program, you then need to apply for a Study Permit with IRCC. Your family members may apply together with you, and that is what we did. Processing time for SP is approximately 12 weeks.
