Hi!  I can't really provide a solution to a complex problem such as a refused study permit on a site such as advicescene, which is meant for summary information only.  If you wish to re-apply for the study permit, you would be wise to retain a lawyer to assist you.

I can tell you generally that the 2 primary factors in deciding whether to issue a study permit is whether the applicant (you) has been accepted to a program of study, and whether they can support themselves and pay the school costs.  However, visa officers who don't think that someone is a "bona fide" (good faith) student will also refuse the application on that basis.  

Without complete information, it is not possible to provide a detailed legal opinion.  However, it seems, from what you've indicated, that the officer looked at your evidence and may have made a determination that you are not a bona fides student, even though you were accepted by a program in Canada.  If you re-applied with assistance from an immigration practitioner, you may be able to overcome that issue through making submissions with your application.
