I am a Swiss citizen and I used to be a student in UBC, Vancouver, Canada. I finished my PhD recently and moved back to Switzerland. For various reasons, I need to get back to Vancouver at some point. When doing, I would like to take advantage to pass my driving license (which I could not pass before leaving because the offices were closed as a measure against covid-19).
In order to pass a driving license, I will need a valid student visa. My visa is valid until summer 2021 and I am hoping that until then, the covid-19 measures will relax and I will be able to make my trip to Vancouver.
Can I enter Canada with a student visa even if I am not a registered student anymore? If not, then I could enter the country as a tourist but I am worried then that my visa could be somehow nullified when I pass the border and that I would not be able to use my visa as ID to pass my driver's license. Would crossing entering Canada as a tourist nullify my student visa?
