canada takes steps to safeguard international students from fraud

Canada Enhances Protection for International Students

Brampton, ON – Canada, known for its world-class education and diverse society, is enhancing its International Student Program to protect the interests of international students, particularly in light of rising fraudulent activities. The Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, announced today the following measures to better protect international students from fraud:

  1. Enhanced Verification: Starting December 1, 2023, IRCC requires that post-secondary designated learning institutions (DLIs) confirm every applicant’s acceptance letter directly with the IRCC, ensuring only genuine letters are accepted for study permits.
  2. “Recognized Institution” Framework: By fall 2024, DLIs that set higher standard in services and support for international students will benefit from the priority processing of study permits for their students.
  3. Review of Post-Graduation Work Permit Program: Post-Graduation Work Permit Program criteria will be reformed to better meet the needs of the Canadian labour market, and regional and Francophone immigration goals.

These measures protect international students, who are essential to Canada’s economy. Canada is dedicated to maintaining the integrity of its International Student Program and working closely with various stakeholders to create a secure and supportive environment.
