A student planning to apply under Student Partners Program (SPP) process needs to purchase a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (G.I.C.) account and deposit CAD$ 10,200 as a proof of their living expense for one year in their account.
After receiving the Letter of Acceptance from the college, the student needs to process for the G.I.C., which takes around 10 to 15 working days.
Initially, the student needs to create a new email id with Scotia Bank. This process takes 4 to 5 days. After that the student needs to make a payment from his/her account through a wire transfer and pay CAD$ 10,200 and from that CAD$ 10,000 would be deposited in their G.I.C. and CAD$ 200 is deducted as Administration charge by Scotia Bank.
After the payment is done, it may take up to 3 or 4 days for the money to get credited in the G.I.C. account.
The student needs to take a print of the receipt of payment in G.I.C. and the receipt should be self-attested in the file while during the application of the Visa process.
Once the student lands in Canada, they need to open a Savings account in Scotia Bank where they will get CAD$ 2000 right away for their living expense and the remaining balance gets transferred in their account every alternate month in equal installments for their living expenses in the entire year.
