French cégep students experience delays receiving study permits

August 11, 2021
Journal de Montréal reports that some students from France, who were planning to study at Cégep de Jonquière in the Fall semester, are experiencing delays receiving their study permits. Students were forced to submit incomplete applications due to shutdowns in France and submitted additional documents as soon as possible. Though the deadline for issuing study permits was Friday, students are still waiting to hear back about the status of their permits. One student told the Journal that he had to cancel his flight to Montreal, and others are worried that they will not be able to enter Canada to start their program in the Fall semester.
