There has been a lot of cases where people visit Canada for a holiday for a month or two but end up wanting to be there for longer. In such circumstances what looks the most feasible option is to enroll in higher studies and explore the opportunities that Canada has to offer. This would allow you to stay in Canada for more than six months. However here we have some options to find out how do we get to convert our tourist visa to a student’s visa.
If your course demands you to stay in Canada for more than six months, you need to have a study permit. If your college/university lies in Canada then you can apply for the study permit within Canada however this might take some time since the documents would be sent outside India at the Canadian Embassy in USA.
