Letter of Invitation
If you would like to invite a friend or relative to visit you in Canada, you may need to send them a Letter of Invitation. UOIT does not provide these letters; you must write the letter yourself.
Please note of the following:
- A Letter of Invitation does not guarantee a visa will be issued to your friend or relative.
- A Letter of Invitation is only one part of your friend's or relative's application. The visa officer will assess the applicant to determine if they meet the requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
- Some visa offices may require that you have your Letter notarized by a notary public. You can use the Student Association Legal Services for this as well.
The information below is based on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website. Refer to their site directly for the most updated information.
