St. Lawrence College has been approved to welcome international students to Canada after having its readiness plan reviewed. This comes as the Federal Government announced that they were easing travelling restrictions for international students. The students must have an approved study permit and are travelling for a “non discretionary” purpose. As a result, the college can welcome international students who are currently outside of the country.
“We’re thrilled to once again be able to welcome international students to our communities with this approval,” said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO, St. Lawrence College. “The health and safety of our students has always been our number one priority and our COVID-19 readiness plan reflects how we continue to support our students while keeping our communities safe. We appreciate the collaboration between our Ministry and the Canadian government, and of course the support and guidance of our local public health units has been incredible during the pandemic.”
SLC’s approved readiness plan outlines how it will manage its 14-day quarantine period for international students. This also includes “arranging where they will be in quarantine, transportation details, and ensuring they get the items they need while in isolation, including food, medications, and access to student supports.”
