Can a student apply for a student visa to become a permanent resident?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Pisarevic v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration), 2019 FC 188 (CanLII):

The Applicant submits that he clearly and honestly stated his dual intention in his application. A stated intention to become a permanent resident is not a bar to obtaining a student visa. The Applicant relies on Madam Justice Strickland’s statement in Ali v. Canada (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship), 2018 FC 702, that “a person may have the dual intent of immigrating and of abiding by the immigration law respecting temporary entry.”
