Immigration Procedures

To study in Québec you will need two documents:

  1. The provincial Ministry of Immigration, Diversity, and Inclusion (MIDI), will issue the Certificate of Acceptance/Certificat d’acceptation (C.A.Q.).
  2. The federal Department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada will provide the Study Permit/Permis de séjour.

You will need both of these to study at Bishop’s University. It is mandatory to provide the Admissions office with a photocopy of each document the first week of semester for government reporting.
