Potential new requirements and conditions for foreign nationals who seek to study in Canada.
For the complete text please visit
On the 30th of June 2012 the federal government published a notice
(Department of citizenship and immigration) stating it’s intention to
introduce new requirements and conditions for foreign nationals who seek
to study in Canada.
Notice is hereby given that Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is
seeking written comments from all interested parties on a proposal to
amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations to introduce
new requirements and conditions on foreign nationals who seek to study
in Canada. The proposed measures would apply principally to foreign
nationals who enter Canada temporarily under a study permit.
The proposed regulatory amendments are intended to ensure that foreign
nationals who obtain study permits enter Canada for the primary purpose
of study. CIC seeks to deter foreign nationals from applying for a study
permit if their intentions are disingenuous, and prevent foreign
nationals from remaining legally in Canada on a study permit should they
abandon their studies. These measures are also intended to ensure
foreign nationals who hold study permits are studying at educational
institutions eligible to host international students.
These regulatory amendments would support the Government of Canada in
improving the integrity of Canada’s immigration system, enhance
accountability both to international students and Canadians, and improve
Canada’s reputation as a destination of choice for studies abroad.
Anyone (including immigration lawyers, stakeholders, provincial,
territorial and municipal governments, interested groups, and the
general public) may, within 30 days of this notice, provide their
comments on this Notice of Intent, in writing, to the person named below
at the address provided.
As international students represent 21% of our student body, I strongly
recommend that we provide comments on this Notice of Intent.
This Notice of Intent is an opportunity for the public to provide early
comments and input into the proposed regulatory amendments described
above, before the regulations are prepublished in the Canada Gazette.
The prepublication process will provide an additional opportunity for
public consultation on the proposed regulations.
To accomplish such a task I want to meet the execs that have input on
this matter or members of international comities of SSMU that want to
comment on this matter.
I am looking out for examples of such rules in other countries and the
repercussions that it as had on international students. Here is a more
detailed information note on the proposed regulatory amendments
