Your Pathway to Success

Choose to study english at EC TorontoEC Vancouver or EC Montreal* and start your journey towards higher education 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 or college is one of the first steps to staying in Canada if you wish to do so. Once you graduate, you can be eligible for a work permit for up to three years, depending on the chosen programme and institution, which may help you if you're interested in pursuing permanent residency.
