Continued advocacy during COVID-19

In year two of the pandemic, we continued to work closely with government, including Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Transport Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada, and the Canada Border Services Agency to ensure that the needs of members and their students were heard and addressed. This year, much of the conversation was focused on international students, the changing nature of program delivery, study permit processing capacity, post-graduate work permit eligibility, and changing restrictions on international travel.
