Advocating for international students

This past year, when Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) communicated their intention to implement a Study Direct Stream in India, China, Vietnam, and the Philippines (replacing programs like SPP-India and CES-Vietnam), CICan raised our members’ concerns at the highest levels. We are confident the changes to the India program will ensure continued strong recruitment and IRCC’s extension of the CES-Vietnam program will provide the time necessary to adjust to changes. CICan also worked with IRCC officials to help identify facilitative measures for study permit processing in markets across West Africa, Kenya, Brazil, and Colombia.
