Can I get citizenship after going to Canada using study permit ?
I live in Saudi arabia and I am applying for a study permit to Canada. My question is that if I go to Canada through a study permit Can I apply for citizenship of Canada ?
I have a relative who has citizenship there so can that help in something like sponsorship ??

The Government of Canada has a special immigration option for that.
It's called Canadian Experience Class.
Here's the information about it from the Citizenship & Immigration Canada website:
Whether you decide to stay in Canada or not: good luck and best wishes for your future success.

No. In fact you are specifically excluded from applying while under a study permit. In fact, you have to apply to actually move to Canada from outside the country.
For a relative to sponsor you, they must be very close - like a parent. A distant cousin is not enough.

After finishing your school you CAN apply for permanent residence or a work visa. Your relative MAY also be able to sponsor you. MUST be close relative.
You also need to be admitted to a school before you get a study permit.
No guarantees depends a lot on what you study.
Warning always watch for ".gc.ca" when looking at information. This is the government. Many AGENTS that will take your money and identification and promise whatever.

Once you finish a four year degree in something in demand in Canada, and have a job offer, you can apply for permanent residence. No guarantee you will get it.

Once you are in Canada, you can apply for permanent residence. After being a permanent resident for at least 3 years, then you can apply for citizenship.
