Canadian DLIs now able to welcome international students

October 23, 2020

Postsecondary institutions across Canada that have been approved by their provinces or territories as Designated Learning Institutions (DLIs) are now able to welcome international students currently residing outside of Canada. Institutions were required to create COVID-19 readiness plans that describe how students and the community will be protected, and detail the management of the quarantine period, including student transportation and quarantine location. They were also required to provide information for students about how they can get necessary items like food, medications, and health insurance throughout their 14-day quarantines. While many DLIs across Canada have been approved for international students, institutions in Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and Nova Scotia have not been approved to reopen to international students.
