Study Under SPP program
The Student Partners Program (SPP) is a pilot project designed and implemented in partnership between the Canadian visa offices in India and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC).

Twenty of ACCC’s member colleges have been involved in the pilot which was launched in April 2009. The participating institutions were selected on the basis of 2008 volumes.

This pilot program aims to test a model for expediting the student visa process and delivering higher approval rates while maintaining program integrity. The SPP is an administrative framework that involves close cooperative partnership and feedback from the member colleges to ensure student compliance with the terms of their study permits. As a result of the extremely poor approval rates Canadian High Commissions posted prior to and in the year 2008, the new Canadian High Commissioner has introduced a pilot project for select community colleges. Due to this program a very dramatic change in the VISA SUCCESS RATE has been seen. (90%-100%)

All Study Permit application checklists have been revised and improved as a result of the SPP framework to help students make simpler applications. All students are strongly encouraged to submit supporting documents as indicated in the checklists to facilitate the processing of their applications.

The pilot is being evaluated and an announcement will be made in January as to whether it will be extended in 2010 and if so, which institutions will be involved. Students interested in submitting applications under the SPP will be encouraged to contact the member college for information. At this time, SPP is open to Indian nationals only. Application submission under the SPP is at the discretion of each member college.
