Good news for all students who are aspiring to study in Canada! 

Not to worry that you are unable to travel to Canada during this COVID situation. A favorable policy has been put in place by the Government of Canada to assist all international students who are presently outside Canada during this difficult time.

  • Students selected for the program should belong to any semester between spring 2020 and fall 2021 or whose program was already in progress in March 2020
  • International students should have a study permit or approval for a study permit or applied for a study permit before they start their online classes and are eventually approved.
