On August 19, 2022, the High Commission of India (HCI) in Ottawa issued an “Advisory for Indian students enrolled in Canadian universities and colleges whose visa applications have been delayed”.
In a year, several petitions are submitted from Indian students that have secured admission in Canadian educational institutions. Many of these are unable to join their academic courses due to the delays in the processing of their visas and study permits.
Recently, Canada has come to be the preferred study abroad destination for Indian students that want to pursue post-secondary education. As per the official communication, “more than 230,000 students from India enrolled in post-secondary institutions in Canada, are making a positive contribution to the Canadian economy including through an estimated $4 billion in tuition fees”.
