Canada Announces Changes to Support International Students

July 15, 2020

Canada has continued to remain a safe and welcoming country for international students amid the COVID-19 pandemic. At Bronte College, we have worked hard to ensure all of our international students continue to have a home in our on-campus residence, even while completing online courses via the Online Learning Program this past semester.

As we prepare for the upcoming school year Bronte College recognizes families may be facing difficulties securing a study visa or booking a flight into Canada. To support our students, Bronte College is offering new online course options for students who will arrive late to campus or who are unable to be on campus for the first semester due to COVID-19 restrictions.

On July 14, the Canadian government announced additional measures the country is taking to support international students beginning an online program this fall in a Canadian school. These changes will give students more certainty about their ability to enter Canada once restrictions are eased. It also means students will be eligible to work in Canada after graduation, even if they begin their studies online from overseas this fall. This process is available to students starting an online program in the fall who apply for a study permit before September 15, 2020.  Read the new measures Canada is implementing to support international students.

At Bronte College all students are welcomed to stay in the on-campus residence while completing courses, either online or in-class.
