On Thursday, April 22, the Canadian federal government issued a new directive to halt all incoming direct flights from India for 30 days due to
very high positive COVID-19 tests conducted at the Canadian border in recent days and weeks. There is all possibility that if cases do not come down
substantially in the coming weeks it could be extended by another few weeks.
We know that some of our student(s) were getting ready to travel and begin their studies in Canada this May, and this adds to the mounting
frustration they must be feeling. At IMTP, we understand the impact of this sudden change in travel policy on our international students, and we
are actively working with our partner institutions to provide more guidance to you and your students during these challenging times.
As students begin to evaluate all their options, we want to remind you that this is only a temporary challenge. We encourage students to begin their studies online until they are able to travel in 30 to 60 days as is the case maybe. As you may already know, most schools in Canada have paused their in-class programs for May intakes even for current students due to the third wave of COVID-19 cases in Canada. Please be reminded that from having paid tuition fees to securing visas, you all have already come so far and start online classes. The long-term benefits of starting studies now far outweigh the challenges placed by current circumstances. IMTP Staff is here to assist you and all other students during these difficult times. We are advocating for the success of all our students, and will continue to share timely updates to help you make informed decisions. Please keep yourself and your families safe by always wearing masks outside and using sanitisers whenever you touch objects outside your home.

"Safety in Canada"
Canada is one of the safest countries, with one of the highest standards of living in the world. Canada is a free country where people are, by and large, judged on their actions and character, rather than their appearance or country of origin. Indians living in Canada: Most Indians choose to live at larger urban centres like Toronto, and Vancouver, where more than 70% of Indians live. Smaller communities are also growing in Calgary, Edmonton, and Montreal. Indians in Vancouver are from different parts of India. A place called Little India exists in Vancouver and a section of Gerrard Street in Toronto.
Indians in Vancouver mainly live in the suburb of Surrey, or nearby Abbotsford and also in other parts of Vancouver.

Along with that a minimum academic record of 65% and above for humanities stream in class XIIth, and 70 - 80% and above for Science/Commerce stream in class XII will also be required.
Foundations and Diploma programs are available for students who have secured below 60%. The student should have completed 18 years of age before joining a degree program.
It is important to note that these numbers are just for reference purpose, the actual numbers may di_er from university to university.
Most Canadian colleges accept online applications. You will have to visit each college's website to apply. In most cases, you will have
to make an account on the college website to provide your basic information, submit the scanned version of your documents and pay
application fees. You will be informed about the application process and stages through this account.
Please refer to the website of the colleges of your choice to know the process of applying as it may differ from institute to institute. Application fee: All colleges require that you pay an application fee while applying. The fee amount will differ depending upon the college and course being applied to, so check with individual colleges about their application fee.
The cost of living depends heavily on what part of Canada will you be living in along with how much you will socialise. Some of the basic elements for living as an international student in Canada are:
The tuition fee varies according to di_erent universities, courses and the city. The tuition expenses in Canada might be up to CDN $10,000-$30,000 per year for an under graduate course. And if you are thinking of applying for a post graduate course, the cost would be $15,000-$55,000 per year.
On an average, a student spends approximately CDN $10,000–$12,000 per year. But the expenses also depend on the place where a student stays. If a student stays in metropolitan city like Toronto or Vancouver the expenses could go up to CDN $15,000 in comparison to a student studying in the suburbs where the expenses would be around CDN $8,000-$10,000 each year.
Insurance Policy for international students is mandatory, as students have to stay abroad for a long period of time. Before getting an insurance make sure that it covers medical expenses, personal accident, dental treatment, study interruption, passport loss etc. Insurance is basically cashless so a student does not need to pay money at the time of hospitalisation.
Merit and need based fee waivers are awarded to international students. Candidate with strong academics, good performance in standardised exams and extracurricular achievements would be eligible for scholarship awards and _nancial assistance. To benefit from these opportunities, one has to make sure to send all the required documents by particular deadlines. In addition to this, the presentation of the application is also important because one is judged by the image one projects.
