Study Permit Vs. Student Visa
A Student Visa is an authorization to enter into a country. This is a conditional authorization, which means that even if you have a student visa, the officer at the border has the authority to deny you entry into the country.
A Study Permit gives you the authority to stay in the country. It has the details about your purpose: what is your reason, why you are here, what course level you are studying, what is the duration, and if there are any restrictions in terms of work.
In other words, think of the difference between Student Visa and Study Permit as follows:
Student Visa – Allows you to enter Canada
Study Permit – Allows you to stay in Canada
