Hi! did you get your study permit approval for Winter 2021 intake? How many weeks they took?I am starting also on January 1 and sent my study permit application on July 21, completed biometrics on July 24. After that, bg check started. I checked the visa processing times website and it says 18 weeks. I hope that information is not correct. If it takes that much, in case of denial and reapply, I would be late. I should be in Canada by the first week of december for mandotary quarantine and to settle in before term starts.
