International students are a integral part of our vibrant community. Therefore, in this time of unprecedented uncertainty, you can be certain of our continued support to all students, within and outside of Canada and the challenges you may face. 

Today, we recognize many of our students are being affected by the Indian Farmer Protest and the violence and brutality many farmers and citizens are enduring because of it. We are committed to listening to undergraduate students, and the concerns they’ve raised about these recent events and the impact it has had on many.  

We understand that your daily life has been interrupted and affected in ways we may never fully understand. 

We want you to know that we are here for you and support you.
