Update on the Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL)
On Jan. 22, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced that students applying for a study permit must submit a Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL) from the province in which they plan to study. Extended Education has yet to receive an allotment of PALs, so we will not have any PALs available for our May 2024 intake. When PALs for September 2024 intake are received, processing will be expedited.
