On March 27, 2023, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) updated instructions for refugee claimants applying for a Canadian study permit. According to the new amendments, those making an in-Canada claim for refugee status must complete a separate online application for a study permit. In the past, refugee claimants had two choices for obtaining a study permit: filling out schedule 12 – Additional Information – Refugee Claimants Inside Canada (IMM 0008) or submitting their claim through the Canadian Refugee Protection Portal (CRPP).
