No clarity currently on when the change will come into effect or its duration
Canada is all set to ban the entry of international students, including those from India, to Ontario, the country’s worst-hit province in the third wave of COVID-19.
Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the government was considering halting the arrival of international students in the province after a request from the premier, Doug Ford, to combat the spread of the coronavirus. Trudeau said the government will reach out to officials to formalise the request. There is no clarity currently on when the change will come into effect or its duration.
International students are at present exempt from Canada’s COVID-19 travel rules and all students need to provide a valid study permit or letter of introduction that shows they were approved for a permit.
According to the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE), there were 530,540 international students in Canada in 2020, of which 34 per cent were from India. Ontario accounts for 46 per cent of Canada’s foreign students.
Canada has reported 1.22 million COVID-19 cases.
