A document checklist is included on the last page of the [IMM 1436] application form. Check off all the items you are sending in your package and include the document checklist in the package as well.
Documents you will need
Important: Even though the document checklist indicates you can include either a letter of acceptance or a letter of enrolment; you must include both of these documents.
Letter of acceptance
Include a copy of the UBC acceptance letter provided when you initially applied for your study permit. This will confirm to IRCC that your study permit was issued based on a work-eligible program and that the omission of the proper work conditions from your permit was an error on their part.
Letter of enrolment
This letter is required to explain details about your studies and help the officer determine your eligibility to work, as well as the remaining time you need to complete your program.
Download your Letter of Enrolment
On the SSC under Grades & Records > Proof of Enrolment Letters.
Important: If you are amending your study permit to allow you to work on or off campus, the letter you provide from UBC must confirm that you meet UBC’s definition of full-time enrolment for immigration purposes.
Get a Customized Enrolment Letter if you are:
- an undergraduate student applying during the summer before you can register for winter courses, OR
- a graduate student who is on an authrized leave for immigration purposes
To get your Customized Enrolment Letter, contact your academic advisor or graduate staff/advisor. Your letter should include your program, your current status as a student, and your expected completion date.
Important: Submit both a Letter of Enrolment and Customized Enrolment Letter (If required)
You must provide a scanned copy of the bio-data page (the page with your name, date of birth, passport number, expiry date, etc.). The passport should be the one you used when you applied for your study permit.
Include a copy of a government-issued or internationally recognized identification that is not your passport. Examples include a National Identity Card, birth certificate, marriage certificate, or driver’s license.
If your document(s) are not in English or French, they must be accompanied by:
- the English or French translation; and
- an affidavit from the person who completed the translation; and
- a certified copy of the original document.
Original study permit
In order to process your amendment request, you must include your original study permit in the package.
Keep a clear photocopy on hand in case you need it, as you will no longer have the original.
