While there isn’t a rule prohibiting distant relatives from financially supporting Study Permit applicants, the question is whether or not it would be recognized by IRCC as a valid proof of financial means. 


It’s highly recommended to have the letter either notarized or prepared as an affidavit, and include a detailed explanation of how and why this person is supporting your application.

They should also include a proof of their finances and a piece of identification (copy of passport). 


Best of luck or for more specific help, check out Visto here.
