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.
