Immigration Advising

Information Sessions for Faculty and Staff: 

International Student Immigration Regulations in Canada

In recent weeks, as a result of global instability caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Memorial has observed an increase in inquiries around immigration advising. To ensure faculty and staff have the most accurate and up-to-date information on international student advising, the Internationalization Office hosted an online information session on international student immigration regulations in Canada on May 5 & 14, from 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm in Brightspace. The session provided an overview of how Memorial supports students through immigration advising, which will include a discussion on who is responsible to provide support and what procedures must be followed. Study permit conditions, including on and off campus employment; student responsibilities related to their immigration status; and institutional responsibilities related to compliance were also covered during the session.
