About this Event

This session is for current international students at SFU.

This year has brought many changes and updates to Canadian immigration policy and processes for international students at SFU. As Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) continues to introduce new policy adjustments for international students, you may have many questions about how these changes will impact you.

Please join us at this session, where an International Student Advisor, Immigration Specialist will provide a brief overview of recent updates regarding immigration and medical insurance for international students, and give you a chance to ask any questions you still have.

The topics covered in this session will include:

  • Immigration policy updates, including any updates on Canada’s travel restrictions and exemptions for international students
  • Important reminders/deadlines
  • Medical insurance updates for international students
  • Q&A

You will have the option to submit questions when you register so that these can be forwarded to the facilitator in advance. You'll also be able to ask questions during the live session. We will answer as many questions as we can.

*Please note that this session only covers immigration & medical insurance related topics and is not a platform to ask case-specific questions. If you would like to talk to an International Student Advisor one-on-one regarding your case, please visit our Connect With Us page for a list of options.

We strongly encourage you to visit our COVID-19 FAQs for international students as well as our Resources page before submitting any questions, as your questions may be answered there.
