Student Visas to Canada- Important information

In order to enter Canada as a foreign student you will need a Study Permit and a Temporary Resident Visa.
How to Apply for a Study Permit

The officer will process your application for a Temporary Resident Visa as well as a Study Permit. You do not need a separate application.

Step 1: Collect the documents you need to apply.

Step 2: Complete the application for a Study Permit. Fill in the forms carefully and completely by following the instructions.

Step 3: Include the correct Processing Fee to apply for a Study Permit. The rate for processing an application for a study permit is $125.00 Cdn. This fee cannot be refunded if your application is refused or if you decide to withdraw your application. Verify acceptable methods of payment and the fee in local currency with the office where you submit your application.

Step 4: Make sure that your application is complete. Use the document checklist to ensure your application is complete.

Note: if your application is not signed, it will be returned to you unprocessed.

To see if you need to fill out any additional forms or provide any additional documents, consult the web site of the following Canadian Visa Offices:

* Nairobi, Kenya

Step 5: Supply additional information or documents when requested by the Visa Office. This may include:
Medical Examination:

You must pass a medical exam if you:

You will receive instructions on how to proceed with a medical examination if needed. If a medical examination is required, processing of your application could take at least three extra months.

If you have not already done so when submitting your application, a visa officer may request a police certificate to help verify your admissibility to Canada. Persons who have committed or been convicted of a crime or offence may be prohibited from entering Canada. Police agencies may do a criminal or security background check. These checks may be done for anyone 18 years of age and over applying for a Study Permit.

If you move or change your address or your telephone number before processing of your application has been completed, you must advise Citizenship and Immigration Canada of this new information. Contact the Visa Office where you submitted your application.

When you apply for your Study Permit, there is no guarantee of acceptance. You should not take any final steps, such as purchasing plane tickets or quitting your job, until your Study Permit is approved.

If you have any questions about your application, please contact the Visa Office where you submitted your application.

Scholarships for ugandans to work and Study in Canada

Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program

The Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program is celebrating 50 years! Since the plan’s inception in 1959, the Government of Canada has provided scholarships of excellence to all member countries of the Commonwealth. The CCSP goal is to promote Canadian values and identity around the world and to help meet the human capital needs of developing countries.

Canada also played a leadership role in the establishment of the international Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan and is the largest contributor to this program after the United Kingdom.
Structure

The Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program is facilitated through student exchange agreements between Canadian and regional institutions. These student exchange agreements are created between universities for graduate students. Scholarship recipients remain registered as full time students in their home institution during this exchange.
Description

* Graduate Students Exchanges (GSEP) are hosted by Canadian institutions for a period of five or six months and provide up to $10,000 to cover transportation, living and other related expenses during the students’ stay in Canada.

Role of the institution

The role of the non-Canadian institution is key to the success of the scholarships as the student exchanges are predicated upon institutional agreements and collaborations. Non-Canadian institutions are encouraged to communicate with partner institutions in Canada to facilitate student exchange opportunities. The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) provides a database of international exchange agreements which, while not exhaustive, does provide a list of some existing agreements.

The Non-Canadian institutions are also invited to promote the program through their International offices and may wish to identify the names of interested students to the Canadian partner institution which will be making the scholarship applications.

Additional questions can be emailed to scholarships@cbie.ca.

The NDP considers “inadequate physical infrastructure” one of 7 binding national constraints and notes that transport costs remain a significant trade barrier (estimated implicit tax on exports of 25%). To alleviate these constraints, the NDP proposes a number of strategic actions aimed at improving road, rail, water and air transport infrastructure and services. 2. Further in support of the NTMP there is a transport sector Joint Institutional Support (JIS) framework in place supported by the various DPs active in the sector. The JIS includes (i) support to the Ministry of Works and Transport (MoWT) to focus on its core functions which are policy setting, strategic planning, sector oversight and monitoring.; (ii) assistance to the District, Urban and Community Access Roads (DUCAR) unit of MoWT to be elevated to an Agency to better support the Local Governments’ road units and to better implement the local roads program; (iii) support to the newly created Road Fund (RF) to perform its functions; (iv) assistance to the Uganda National Road Authority (UNRA) to enhance its performance; and (v) support to develop the national road construction industry. Total joint support amounts to US$65.3 million over a five year period from 2010 to 2014. 3. The Bank and DFID financed Transport Sector Development Project (TSDP) supports a three year slice of the NTMP from FY10/11 to FY12/13. In particular, it finances the paving of 160 kilometers of national roads in the north, the preparation of bidding documents for the rehabilitation and paving of a further 300 kilometers of the north – eastern corridor road, improved capacity for road safety management, and the enhancement of the capacity of MoWT and UNRA in the framework of the above described JIS. The Government also envisions investments in other key transport sub-sectors including rail, road, lake and inland waterway, and air transport, to be financed from a mix of national, private and development partner sources. Note: If the selected candidate is a current Bank Group staff member with a Regular or Open-Ended appointment, s/he will retain his/her Regular or Open-Ended appointment. All others will be offered a 3 year renewable term appointment.
Duties and Accountabilities
# 4. Development partners as a whole have not been adequately engaged in dialogue with the GOU. There has been insufficient push and support for the government’s reform plans, and inadequate challenge on the lack of progress towards improving transport sector interventions in general, and road safety, district road maintenance, and links between roads and poverty reduction, in particular. 5. It is therefore proposed to employ a Senior Transport Sector Specialist based at the World Bank Kampala Office to (i) support GoU and development partners to enhance the implementation of the transport program, (ii) to engage with government on sector reform issues, including managing the reform elements of TSDP and, (iii) support government’s ability to prioritize investment program and to formulate appropriate policy focusing on improving transport infrastructure and services. 6. The Senior Transport Sector Specialist would work closely with the Senior Highway Specialist and other relevant officers of the World Bank, as well as the DFID Infrastructure Specialist of the DFID Kampala Office. The Senior Transport Sector Specialist will also work closely with the DFID financed Implementation Specialist who is proposed to be placed at MoWT to assist MoWT to implement the capacity building components of TSDP. 7. The Senior Transport Sector Specialist will interact closely with the various agencies responsible for the transport sector in Uganda, including the Ministry of Works and Transport (MoWT), Uganda National Roads Authority, Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development (MoFPED), Uganda Road Fund and with the other sector development partners, particularly the EC, AfDB, DANIDA and JICA. 8. One of the constraints in the sector is the lack of dissemination of up-to-date sector knowledge. The Senior Transport Sector Specialist would also be tasked with (i) implementing relevant sector studies, (ii) organizing workshops and learning events, and (iii) ensuring knowledge sharing through other relevant means such as the establishment of a web-site. 9. An important area to be addressed in the sector is the lack of monitoring and evaluation capacity. As part of the capacity building, TSDP plans to assist the buildup of a Transport Sector Data Management System (TSDMS) at MoWT. The Senior Transport Sector Specialist would advise on such system and ensure that it will capture relevant economic data that are necessary to formulate an informed decision making. 10. It is expected that the Senior Transport Sector Specialist will contribute to a more effective and efficient transport sector in Uganda, though the following outputs: Improved implementation of the transport program by GoU
# Improved World Bank/DFID and other development partner strategic engagement in the transport sector
# Improved debate and dialogue with Government and development partners in the transport sector
# Transport sector activities and outcomes reflected in joint budget support operation and the associated results framework
# Improved division of labor and collaboration between development partners
# Advisory inputs provided to World Bank/DFID’s programs on transport institutions and regional integration
# Strengthened links between transport and economic growth and between the World Bank’s project portfolio and overarching strategic transport issues in Uganda
# Strengthening of the links between NTMP and the goals of East African integration 11. Based in the World Bank Office in Kampala, the Senior Transport Sector Specialist will develop a general work plan that will be agreed by MoWT, World Bank and DFID. Indicative activities include:
# engaging strategically with GoU and development partners on issues related to transport and economic growth;
# challenging GoU and development partners’ approaches in the transport sector where appropriate;
# carry out the production of relevant studies and ensure their disseminations;
# conduct workshop and learning events based on the outputs of these studies;
# improving links between strategic initiatives in the transport sector and the World Bank’s project portfolio;
# participating in joint sector meetings and reviews;
# supporting Development Partners engagement with the transport sector in Uganda, including as appropriate through trade facilitation
# engaging in the transport relevant regional events and advise GoU on improved linkage with the NTMP
# executing other tasks, as assigned, related to the World Bank’s support to the transport sector in Uganda; and
# providing support to cross cutting country and regional office strategic activities when called upon. Timeframe 12. The Senior Transport Sector Specialist post will be supported for 3 years. Reporting 13. The Senior Transport Sector Specialist will be part of the Uganda transport team and report to the Africa Transport Sector Manager based in Washington, DC and the Country Manager in Kampala, Uganda. The Bank will regularly update DFID on the individual’s performance and any changes to the ToRs will be agreed upon jointly.
Selection Criteria
# 14. The candidate shall hold a masters or doctoral degree in economics, transport, public administration, public policy, or engineering. The successful candidate will have the following characteristics: Excellent understanding of sector policies and practices in the transport sector, particularly in sub Saharan African countries
# Excellent knowledge of transport economics and transport and trade facilitation
# Good understanding of institutional/organizational reforms
# Proven track record of leading high level policy dialogue
# Good understanding of aid effectiveness principles
# Experience with capacity development
# Ability to work in a multi-cultural and multi-discipline environment
# Excellent verbal and written communications skills; ability to communicate ideas effectively and to write quickly and clearly
# Specific knowledge of Uganda or East African Community countries would be an asset
# At least eight years of relevant experience in transport sector analysis, and lead transport policy dialogue with government authorities.
