The Student Partners Program (SPP)
The Student Partners Program (SPP) is a pilot project designed and implemented in partnership between the Canadian visa offices in India and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC).
The SPP is a pilot project designed which aims to test a model for expediting the student visa process and delivering higher approval rates while maintaining program integrity. The SPP is an administrative framework that involves close cooperative partnership and feedback from the member colleges to ensure student compliance with the terms of their study permits. All Study Permit application checklists have been revised and improved as a result of the SPP framework to help students make simpler applications. All students are strongly encouraged to submit supporting documents as indicated in the checklists to facilitate the processing of their applications.

EICC was established in 2003 with a vision to take the Canadian education, which is one the best and cheaper compared to Australia, USA, UK, to parts of world where it is in great demand and prove useful so that after getting this education they turn into better and competitive professionals in the world job market. Therefore EICC started working with many universities/colleges/educational institutions of Canada to devise and tailor made degree/diploma programs in such a way that all foreigners who come to Canada their back-home degrees/qualifications do not go waste and they join the Canadian skilled workforce in a shorter time and at minimum expense.
Therefore, EICC has a plan to bring maximum number of accelerated degree programs of different streams in Brampton, which is a home to more than 100,000 immigrants, so that these immigrants can upgrade their back home degrees to the ones which are compatible to the Canadian education system and they can join the Canadian job market in the shortest possible time.
Why study in Canada ?
Canadians place great importance on learning, and have developed a first-rate education system with high standards. The country spends more on education (as a percentage of Gross National Product) compared to the Organization for Economic and Co-operation and Development (OECD) average, and is highest among G-7 countries.
Canadian students consistently rank among the best in world on international tests of reading, science and mathematics such as the OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment - a testament to the outstanding quality of Canadian schools. A Canadian degree, diploma or certificate is recognized globally as being equivalent to those from the United States and Commonwealth countries.
Many well-regarded leaders in business, government and academic circles around the world have received part of their education - language studies and/or academic - in Canada.
