      Maybe just book it a few months in advance, it will at least show that you still have ties back home and the intention to return from time to time. 🤷‍♂️

      I thought that this was what they meant by that too, But it doesn't make any sense to me in terms of how it proves to them that I plan to leave after my 2 years are up, if the return ticket is booked for 2 days after I arrive

      Unfortunately I've got no knowledge on this subject to share with you, but good luck with your application. On your side note, maybe someone else who did the same can also comment, but you can always just book a return ticket for the sake of booking it, it literally cost the same if not less. If you don't use the return leg, then so be it, I know that it is frowned upon in the industry however but I don't think it has any repercussions.

      Hi. To introduce myself; I am 19, have been accepted into a university in British Columbia, paid for the first year's tuition, and applied for my study permit [It's been 17 days since sending my full application]. I've been distraught by the thought of my application being denied because they don't have enough proof I will return home after my studies are completed.  I have read many posts that say I need to convince the Canada Immigration Officer (in my application), that I will return home and not stay on after. My biggest question to this is simply "Where?". I have sent in all the documents that they required of me at the time, in the application; But I was not once asked about my intent to return, about what personal assets I have on my own name in South Africa [A car pretty much], my previous track record of returning after travels [They did however require a PDF with all the stamped pages of my passport], a cover-letter or letter-of-purpose. None of it. [I have traveled in and around Vancouver for 12 days last month on a visitor visa, and returned home if that helps my case]. My second biggest question is simply "When?" am I supposed to give all of the above mentioned to them then? I've put in a lot of effort into doing everything right and by the book. If my application gets declined I honestly do not know what I would do. So much rests upon that 1 decision, which i fear is out of my hands now. Thank you so so much for reading this all 😝
