    Hello Sasi,

    The admission process in Canada would begin January onwards. Prepare well for IELTS to meet the minimum requirement of an IELTS overall band score of 6.5.

    You need to follow the application deadlines for the Universities you shortlist to send your applications to. For all those Universities you shortlist, you need to complete the application process for.

    For research based Masters degree you need to communicate with the professors of the Universities too. This is important to map the research interests between you and your future supervisor.

    For further clarity on the admissions process, check te following explanatory articles:

    From Idea to Institution I:Study Canada

    From Idea to Institution II:Study Canada

    Hope the above information helps!
