DLIs with Covid-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan

The IRCC has clearly outlines that in order to reopen for international students who are not in Canada presently, the DLIs must have a province or territory approved COVID-19 readiness plan to ensure the health and safety of all the students and the nearby communities.

As per the protocol, a COVID-19 readiness plan must:

  • Describe how a DLI will manage the 14-day of mandatory quarantine period for overseas students, that includes transportation arrangements to the quarantine location of students
  • Provides required support and information to overseas students regarding how to get the necessary items like food and medicines, health insurance and to remain healthy

Please note, In case a an international student's DLI is not included under approved list on DLIs, then he/she can't travel to Canada at this point of time. If the students tries to travel to Canada under this scenario, the airport authority may not allow him/her to board the flight or the student may be turned away at the Canadian port of entry.
