Canada offers a range of opportunities for Indian students to study at its universities and colleges. The Student Direct Stream (SDS) program launched by the Canadian High Commission has simplified and standardized the visa application process for Indian students, making it faster and more efficient. Under this program, students can benefit from a faster visa processing time if they apply to colleges under the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) members.
To apply, students need to meet the requirements of the Canadian Immigration Act and Regulations, including holding an unconditional offer letter, a valid passport, and demonstrating proof of purchase of a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC). Once the application is submitted, it is processed and the passport can be collected from the nearest Canada Visa Application Centre.
