International students can enter Canada if they have a valid study permit or if their designated learning institution has a COVID-19 readiness plan that is approved. International students can also finish their degree online at a Canadian-recognized learning institution and still qualify for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) after graduation.

Universities and Colleges in Canada
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has approved over 1,500 universities, colleges, and other educational institutions to accept international students. Designated learning institutes (DLIs) are educational institutions that are approved by IRCC for international students. The IRCC's list of approved DLIs is continually expanding. Please check the official website of the Canadian government to see if the university, college, or other institution you would like to attend is approved by IRCC.
Overall, universities in Canada provide equivalent levels of high-quality education because Canada emphasizes equality in its educational system. It seeks to guarantee that all students receive the most excellent possible education, regardless of which institution they attend.
There are over 150 community colleges in Canada that provide high-quality education. Community colleges offer more practical training to assist students in rapidly integrating into the labour market. In contrast, universities provide theoretical knowledge and career training in certain professions (e.g., medical, engineering, and law). At the same time, college programs are more practical, with students learning skills to help them find a job in their field of study.
