Coming to Canada

Obtaining a Study Permit

If you wish to take academic, professional or vocational training at a university, college or other educational institution in Canada, you will need a study permit before you enter Canada.

There are a few exceptions to this rule. For example, you do not need a permit if you are enrolling in a short-term course or program of six months or lessHowever, if you think you might study for more than six months, it is a good idea to obtain a study permit before you arrive.

OCMT is currently accepting applications from international students into all the programs.

Social Activities for International Students

We understand coming to a new country can be overwhelming and sometimes, shocking with numerous changes happening from different angles. Our support team provides a friendly atmosphere where students can ask questions and get their answers from our dedicated International Student Advisor(s). There are many attraction spots to visit in Ontario such as the CN Tower, Canada’s Wonderland, Niagara Falls, and so many more. You can visit Exploring Ontario to get more details on popular destinations in Ontario.

Plus, some of our staff were once international students, and we believe they would be a direct source of information and inspiration to you. For social activities within the Greater Toronto Area, including the public library, recreation, community centers, Toronto Transit information, religion and immigration information centers, please subscribe to our newsletter.

No one intends to become ill while traveling or studying abroad, but the wise traveler plans ahead. It is best to completely understand the health care system of whatever country you’re in; Canada’s health care system is no exception.

All international students who study in Canada are required to have health insurance. Medical coverage available to international students varies from province to province. In provinces where international students are not covered under provincial health care plans, you will have to make arrangements for private health insurance coverage. All international students coming to study at the Ontario College of Management and Technology are encouraged to have their health coverage. You may also subscribe to volume coverage (at cost) available through our third-party insurance firms.

It is expedient that students purchase their health insurance policy prior to the commencement of their studies at the Ontario College of Management and Technology.

It is an offense against the Canadian Immigration law for any student to violate the stipulation on their study permits by engaging in unlawful activities that contravenes the purpose of their stay in Canada.

Therefore, OCMT ensures all students received information by attending the info session upon their arrival in Canada, and resumption at the college. To register for the immigration information session to further understand what you must know to stay legal in Canada, please contact our student support service by email at studentservices@ocmtontario.ca.
