Application Package  

 

Welcome to the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board International Student Program. 

 

To facilitate your application process, please take note of the following: 

  • Please ensure that your application is duly completed and signed. Incomplete applications (missing information, signatures or required documents) will not be processed until they are complete. (Please allow 1-2 weeks for processing). 

 

  • When applying for a CAQ, make sure to select “Vocational training Program / Diplôme d’études professionnelles” under the Program or level of studies / Programme ou niveau d’études field. 

• Note: If you already have a CAQ with a different level of studies, please request a change as soon as possible. 

 

  • When applying for a Study Permit, make sure to indicate, “Designated learning institution in the province of Quebec” under the Institution Name / Nom de l’institution field.   

 

  • Our end dates for vocational programs are tentative and could vary.

 

  • It is strongly recommended to submit applications at least 3-4 months prior to the start date of the program. 

 

  • It is strongly recommended to arrive in Canada 1-2 weeks prior to the beginning of the program in order to finalize the registration process in a timely manner. Students must come in person with all their original documents and the payment of at least the first installment to finalize registration. 

 

  • It is mandatory to maintain regular and consistent attendance in all programs. The maximum extension we could make for students who are late, will be 1-2 days. If the student’s arrival is scheduled for a date beyond this exception, he/she will be deferred to the next intake. 

 

  • Some programs require functional French speaking skills (specifically those where the students interact with patients or clients such as Homecare Assistance and Nursing). 

 

Health insurance is a legal requirement for any international student studying in the province of Quebec. The ISP, through their designated insurance provider (INGLE international) will provide this service. Our insurance has a very competitive rate and  excellent coverage. The cost of the insurance will be added to the student’s tuition fee statement. 

 

  • A program will run only if the minimum amount of participants required (20 students) is met. 

Thank you for choosing the International Student Program of Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board. If you have any questions, please contact us at swlauriersb@capstoneesolutions.com.
