Canadian University Pathways

Study in Canada. Stay in Canada.

Your Pathway to Success

Choose to study English at EC Toronto or EC Vancouver, and start your journey towards university and your future in Canada!

Our Canadian University Pathway programme provides you with access to a wide range of universities and colleges to choose from across Canada, including some of the country’s most highly ranked institutions.

Studying at a Canadian university is one of the first steps to staying in Canada. Once you graduate, you will be eligible for a work permit for up to three years, which may help you if you're interested in pursuing permanent residency.
