Many Bangladeshi students ask me about Canada study permit requirements .Here is what you need to do .Organize and bring all the documents from Bangladesh for study permit.  Here is the step by step online application process that  you can also apply paper based which is bit more time consuming: –

  1. Go to this link and click Find out if you are eligible to apply online . this will take you to another page where you have to answer multiple questions. Answers correctly all the questions. If they satisfy then they will give your “document checklist” at the end of the questions. There will be “personal reference code: BJ29………” keep it safe you will need it.
