Top DLI Institutes for Canada Study Visa in September Intake 2023

Designated Learning Institutions

To apply for a study permit, you need an acceptance letter from a designated learning institution (DLI). A DLI is a school approved by a provincial or territorial government to host international students.

Every Canadian educational institute have their own DLI number. DLI institute always starts from the capital O. DLI give permission to host international students but that doesn’t mean that student will get the Post Study Work Permit.

This criterion of DLI number came into effect on 1st June 2014. According to Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulation (IRPR), an international student willing to pursue courses in Canada that last longer than 6 months must have a Letter of Acceptance from a DLI Canada. You can check whether any Canadian college/ university is giving PSWP or not through the IRCC website.

The student is expected to mention the DLI number (DLI#) beginning with Letter 'O' on the study permit application form. Hence, you must check the DLI number of the respective DLI schools in Canada in which you are applying.

DLI colleges in Canada are administered by the federal government or agency. They fulfil all the provincial requirements in terms of higher offering education in Canada.
