Canada announces further supports for international students

February 17, 2021
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada has announced new measures that will provide more flexibility for international students. Eligible international students will now be permitted to complete up to 100% of their program online from outside of Canada, while remaining eligible for the post-graduate work permit. “Their status may be temporary, but the contributions of international students are lasting. This new policy means that students hoping to work in Canada after graduation won’t miss out on opportunities, while ensuring that Canada meets the urgent needs of our economy for today and tomorrow,” said Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Marco E L Mendicino. “Our message to international students and graduates is simple: We don’t just want you to study here, we want you to stay here.” Canada | CICan | The Star (National)
