COVID-19: the latest updates for post-secondary institutions and international students
For institutions welcoming international students, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) continues to update its list of designated learning institutions (DLIs) with approved COVID-19 readiness plans. The list was most recently updated on January 12.
- Note that as of January 7, all travellers flying to Canada are required to present a negative COVID-19 test result to the airline prior to boarding.
- The two-stage study permit assessment process has been extended to include applications submitted on or before December 15, 2020 for study permit applications; and,
- Beginning January 27, former international students who hold or held a PGWP will have the opportunity to apply for an open work permit.
As always, we continue to work with IRCC, other government departments and stakeholders to advocate on your behalf.
