Sub: Request for grant of visa
I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to the committee for reconsidering my application. I would like to introduce myself as an avid learner, desiring to explore the scope exhibited by the domain of International Business Management with the program offered by Durham College, Canada.

“I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay, as stipulated in subsection 216(1) of the IRPR, based on the purpose of your visit.”
Therefore, with this application, I have put forth my honest zeal to study in Canada and pave bright career pathways in India. I have no intention to set up a life in Canada, and the following are the reasons to support my statement.
With a purpose in your mind and hope in your heart, there is nothing in this world that can stop you from attaining what you set your eyes to. I have led all my life with such persistence and never let my enthusiasm slip a bit. To ensure my self-esteem stands undefeated, my beloved family and friends consistently stood by me. Having been born and raised in a disciplined yet vibrant family, I didn’t take much time to develop the consciousness to realize my dreams. My family has always been with me, supporting me endlessly to pursue my dream and backing me up in my every decision. We are a family of five, consisting of my grandfather, father, mother, elder brother, and myself.

My dream is to make a meaningful career trajectory in the field of Business on Indian soil and make my family proud of my professional accomplishments. So, I would like to assure the committee that my family is what matters to me the most, and I wish to be with them till my last breath. To put it simply, I will leave Canada once I complete my degree, return to my homeland and join my father’s business.
Upon completing this program, I desire to return to India, my native country where my heart lies and my family resides. I believe this international program will inculcate me with exhaustive knowledge of the Business world and familiarize me with the know-how of commencing, scheduling, implementing, directing, and concluding large-scale projects. Thus, upon my arrival to India, I wish to direct my knowledge bracket to join my father’s business and accelerate the company’s pace of growth. In the initial years, I aim to be well-versed in business operations and marketing and address the issues with an informed approach.
