Okanagan College Leads for Digital Innovation with ApplyProof

Okanagan College has joined institutions across Canada in implementing ApplyProof, the trust solution supporting international students’ Proof of Acceptance. This partnership with ApplyProof will enable trust in admitted students’ documents,  and efficiency in study permit application processes for international students. Okanagan strives for the highest standards of performance and innovation in all areas of the college. Innovative digital solutions like ApplyProof advantage interoperable technology to support successful student enrollment.

“Okanagan College is proud to be among the Canadian institutions leading to solve a sectoral problem,” says Gordon Shuster, Director, International Education. “Trust and efficiency in the verification of international student documents is essential for securing the integrity of international student enrollments. Partnering with ApplyProof allows us to implement cutting edge digital technology to support our students on their successful journey to study in Canada.”  

Enabling Efficiency and Innovation

Okanagan’s letters of admission will now be processed securely and efficiently to ensure they are the verifiable Proof of Acceptance required by IRCC. When students include their ApplyProofed letter in their study permit application, immigration officials can access the up-to-date digital original on ApplyProof in a matter of seconds. ApplyProof is a seamless experience for students. There is no additional step required for them to have their documents verified, and they have the ApplyProof service at no cost. 

“Enabling institutions to more efficiently meet their enrollment and diversification goals is a high value for ApplyProof,” says Iman Hassani, Head of ApplyProof. “As a trust solution, we are laser-focused on building trust in student documents. We are committed to making education accessible for students around the world, and are proud to support Okanagan College in inspiring and facilitating learning and innovation.” 


The ApplyProof platform transforms the way official student documents are verified and shared with students, government and education stakeholders. Driven by the need for trust in international student documents and mitigating fraud, ApplyProof enables government stakeholders to verify the authenticity of a document by viewing the digital original held securely on ApplyProof servers using unique identifier passcodes.
