SPP stands for Student Partners Program. Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) and the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has developed this program in partnership. It is an arrangement between selected Canadian educational institutions and Canadian High Commission in India to provide fast and easy study visa for the prospective students to study in participating institutions in Canada. SPP was started with the purpose to make the admissions-visa process more efficient and increase the number of Canadian student visa issued to Indian students. To apply for SPP you need to apply to a participating college and if your application meets the specific criteria, you may be considered under the program. It is recommended that you submit your application at least three months before the beginning of the academic course.

You need to undergo a compulsory medical examination before submitting your visa application by visiting one of the Designated Medical Practitioners in India.
