Is it legal to provide false information on my immigration or citizenship application, if a representative advises me to do so?
It depends on where you’re applying from.
If you’re applying from outside of Canada
Due to COVID-19, if you want to study in Canada for 6 months or less, you’re now required to
- get a study permit and
- attend a DLI with a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by its province or territory
You won’t be able to travel to Canada if you don’t have a study permit and your DLI isn’t on the approved list.
If you’re already in Canada
No. If you’re already in Canada, you don’t need a study permit for a course or study program that lasts 6 months or less. You must get a study permit if you want to study for longer than 6 months.
