Records and official letters

At any time before, during, or after your time at UFV, you may need a letter from us. These letters confirm details from our records about you. You may need them for work, travel, further education, or other purposes.

Requesting records and letters

The kinds of letters you might need include:

  • Study permit renewal letters
  • Bank letters
  • Military letters

Keep your information up to date

To provide you with any letters, we need to have your current Canadian address and emergency contact information.

You must:

  1. Advise UFV and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) of you current Canadian mailing address. UFV and IRCC need the information so we can do things like process your study permit.
  2. Provide contact information for at least one person who lives in Canada. You can add more than one emergency contact, plus information for contacts outside of Canada. We will only use this information if we have concerns about your safety and/or health.

Request a COVID-19 travel support letter

UFV is on the Government of Canada’s list of Designated Learning Institutions (DLIs) with an approved COVID-19 readiness plan. Because we are part of this list, international students who are currently outside Canada can study in-person with us.

Students travelling to Canada to study at UFV must complete both of the following steps:

  1. Provide UFV with their travel details using the iCent app.
  2. Comply with Canada's mandatory Government pre-travel and post-arrival requirements.

You may be asked to show a travel support letter by airlines before boarding your flight. To request this letter, you must be registered for the fall 2021 semester.

Your Travel Support letter will be emailed to your UFV email address within ten days of submitting the form.‌‌
