TD and ApplyBoard Collaborate to Support Indian Students Pursuing Studies in Canada

New Delhi: TD and ApplyBoard have collaborated to aid international students embarking on their educational journey in Canada. ApplyBoard, in collaboration with TD, Canada’s second-largest bank and the sixth largest in North America, aims to equip students with the necessary resources and support for a seamless transition to Canadian academia.

Through the TD International Student Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) Program, prospective students aspiring to study in Canada can bolster their study permit applications. ApplyBoard’s secure technology, ApplyProof, ensures the provision of verifiable Proof of Financial Support, enhancing the credibility of these applications.

Indian students can initiate a GIC with TD sans any application fees through a straightforward digital process, enabling them to accrue interest even before setting foot in Canada. Furthermore, the TD International Student GIC Program offers students a TD Student Chequing Account, exempt from monthly plan fees (subject to conditions), with unlimited transactions and added perks. Upon arrival, students can leverage TD’s extensive branch network, boasting over 1,000 branches with the country’s longest operational hours and multilingual advisors proficient in over 80 languages.

“We are excited to share the news of this relationship with ApplyBoard as we work to make things easier for students from across the world, embarking on their journey to study in Canada,” said Sona Mehta, Executive Vice President of Canadian Personal Banking, TD Bank Group. “We know that navigating the process to study abroad can be challenging, and at TD, we are committed to supporting international students coming to Canada by offering tools, programs and trusted advice, designed to facilitate a frictionless transition to the Canadian banking environment,” she further added.”

This initiative targets Indian students eligible for the Canadian Government’s Student Direct Stream (SDS) Program, aligning with the program’s minimum financial requirement of $20,635 CAD as of January 1, 2024.

“With TD’s legacy of providing financial solutions to Canadians for over 150 years, and ApplyBoard’s position as the leading student mobility platform, we are optimistic that international students will receive the support and guidance they need to succeed in their academic pursuits,” said Meti Basiri, Co-Founder & CEO, ApplyBoard. “Together, we are dedicated to empowering international students throughout their journey and ensuring their success in Canada.”
