Colleges Ontario releases sector-wide standards to protect international students

March 17, 2023
Colleges Ontario recently released a set of sector-wide standards that will protect international students. The standards include transparent and accurate marketing, requiring international agents to complete an endorsed agent training program, ensuring that students receive key information before arriving in Ontario, and providing students with help adjusting. Colleges will be expected to be compliant by June 2024 and will undergo a review process. 23 of Colleges Ontario’s 24 members committed to the standards: The Toronto Star reports that Seneca College did not sign on because it is planning to release a similar strategy for both international and domestic students.
