Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is the department of the Government of Canada which manages everything related to immigration, including your application. As an international student you should always follow the instructions found on the IRCC website. This is the primary source for information about applying for Canadian immigration documents. Any application you want to submit MUST be through this official government website.
We recommend that you keep up-to-date with any changes in regulations that may affect your status.
