The SPP is an administrative framework designed and implemented in partnership between the Canadian Visa offices in India and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC). The SPP was developed by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) in cooperation with the ACCC. The project was launched in April 2009 to improve student recruitment outcomes. SPP program was open only for Indian Nationals initially but after seeing the success of the project for Indian students it has been also started for China. The program aims to test a model for expediting the student visa process and delivering high approval rates while maintaining program integrity. The visa approval rates under this program are very high.
Due to the improvement achieved during the pilot, the program is being extended and expanded in 2011 also. Under this Program 43 collages of Canada are listed and there are many other ACCC colleges which also welcome students from India. Applications to these colleges will also receive prompt processing and a fair and individual decision based on the documentation provided.
The Student Partners Program involves close cooperative partnership and feedback from the participating colleges to ensure student compliance with the terms of their study permits.
