LaSalle College is the first college in the province of Quebec to be accepted into the Student Partners Program (SPP)
This program helps applicants going to participating schools simplify the visa application process by providing objective documentation such as the GIC from a Canadian bank and English or French language results (IELTS/TEF). This program started as a partnership between Citizenship and Immigration Canada and Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan).The SPP is open to some nationalities only and it was launched to improve student recruitment outcomes.
The Student Partners Program involves close cooperative partnership and feedback from the participating colleges to ensure student compliance with the terms of their study permits. Essential to the program feedback mechanism is the student's consent for the institution to provide information on attendance to Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
The LCI Education network, of which LaSalle College is a member, had the chance to meet with Shakira, Founder of Pies Descalzos, while she was in Montreal for her concert on August 8.
