Canadian Study Permit
All students who intend to study in Canada for more than six months must apply for a Canadian study permit in their home country before coming to Canada. The processing time can take anywhere from a couple weeks to many months, depending on your home country. Please read this information from the Government of Canada.
International students under the age of 18 who live and study in Canada without a parent must declare a legal custodian who lives in Ontario (and in some cases, lives close to Kingston). A custodian is a Canadian citizen, or permanent resident of Canada, who takes legal responsibility of minor children. Applicants may declare a family member or friend as a legal custodian.
Limestone District School Board provides legal custodianship to international students who do not have such a person in Canada.
All international students who stay in a Limestone homestay must purchase health insurance through the International Education Office. Insurance forms, and instructions on what to do if a student needs medical care in Canada, are issued to all international students upon their arrival in Kingston. International Education Office staff work closely with students and their homestay families in the event that a student needs medical attention and submits an insurance claim.
