Study Permits Applicants Do Not Have to Pay Tuition, Says Federal Court

Peter Fey



Study permits applicants

In the case of Tehrani v. Canada, the Federal Court determined that applicants for study permits do not have to pay all or part of their tuition expenses (Citizenship and Immigration). Iranian national Tehrani applied for a study permit after being admitted to a degree in project management at a university in Toronto. The immigration official rejected Tehrani’s application for a study permit because she was unconvinced that he would depart Canada after his permitted stay expired. The court explained that in order to be exempt from paying tuition under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR), a candidate must simply show that they have been admitted to a course of study.

It is not necessary for the applicant to provide proof that any or all tuition has been paid. Instead, IRPR just needs the person to demonstrate that they have the resources to cover tuition and other costs. The officer’s decision to deny Tehrani’s study permission was deemed irrational by the court because it lacked explanation and failed to consider the evidence Tehrani had presented.
