Further flexibilities to support international students

We are pleased to share that Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada has announced further flexibilities to support international students:

  • New measures will allow up to 100% of a student’s program to be completed online from outside of Canada while remaining eligible for the post-graduate work permit.

This announcement reflects the ongoing evolution of the pandemic. It also reflects the impact of our extensive advocacy efforts to demonstrate the value of international students to Canada.

Colleges and institutes across Canada continue to safely welcome international students according to their approved COVID-19 readiness plans. Note that additional testing and more stringent quarantine requirements for travel to Canada will come into effect on February 22. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will share additional information as it becomes available.
