However, the most general procedures and requirements to get admission in Canada are: an application form, an official high school transcript or university transcript, CV which present your educational achievements, work or volonteer experience, and a letter of intent (LOI) that demonstrate personal and professional goals of the student and explains the interest of the applicant.
