It is primordial to obtain the entry and stay visas before coming to Canada. However, the CAQ and study permit are not required by foreign nationals whose program of studies is for six months or less; a visitor's visa is sufficient.
University residences: are reserved for regular full-time students. Rent for a single room is around 0 per month, and a lease must be signed. For further information or to request a room, please contact the University's residences directly.
Off-campus housing: information is available through the University's off-campus housing office. The office has a database of apartments and rooms located near the University and in areas that are easy to access by metro or bus.

Over the last five years, some 20 postdoctoral students have continued original research projects at the CRDP in its research areas. In collaboration with a main or associate researcher in the Regroupement droit et changements, postdoctoral students are invited to take part in the work of one of our researcher teams. Through their publications, conferences, seminars, researcher project development and teaching, postdoctoral researchers contribute in many ways to the researcher activities of the CRDP and the Regroupement.
For further information on postdoctoral research at the CRDP and on how to request financial support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and visit the website of Faculté des études supérieures de l'Université de Montréal.
