Hello Schulich International Students!

Are you interested in applying for permanent residence (PR) in Canada? Do you know what your options are? Did you know that you may already meet the eligibility requirements for PR?

Your Schulich International Relations team is excited to introduce a NEW set of immigration information sessions this term, the Permanent Residence Series, which will be focused on providing you with a better understanding of what your PR options are and how to apply. Please see the details below:

Dates/location to be confirmed

*IMPORTANT NOTE: you must attend the Options and Overview session before registering/attending the Lunch Series. The Lunch Series are designed to be more in-depth on specific PR topics and will not be a review of general information/eligibility.  If you have previously attending a PR Options session, you are eligible to attend the Lunch Series.

** Group advising will also be held immediately following each Friday session, from 1pm-2pm. These advising sessions will be open to session attendees only, and give you an opportunity to ask session-relevant questions in a group setting.  

Registration will be required for each session and invitations will be sent for the Lunch Series closer to the relevant dates.  As an important reminder, you MUST attend a relevant session before booking a one-on-one with our International Student Support Specialist / Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant.

Spouses/partners are welcome to also attend these immigration-related sessions.
