Last month in September 2018 Lambton College unveiled its new Centre of Excellence in Energy & Bio-Industrial Technologies – a 34,000 sq. ft., $14.2 million addition to its Sarnia campus!

Highlights of this state-of-practice facility include a Water/Waste Water Pilot Lab, Steam Boiler Lab, Robotics & PLC Lab, Nanotechnology Engineering Lab, and a Research Analyzer Lab. The Centre was designed to meet the needs of the energy and bio-industrial sector and solidify Lambton’s position as a national leader in practical learning and applied research.

The Centre focuses on two major streams: Education and Training, and Applied Research.

At its core, the Centre provides superior post-secondary technology programming and training to domestic and international students, as well as industry partners in energy and bio-based sectors. Additionally, the facilities will support industry and businesses through applied research, development, commercialization, incubation, prototyping, automation, and pilot plant studies to develop new or improved technologies, products, and processes.

These new facilities will be utilized by several of its fall 2019 programs, including:

• Chemical Production & Power Engineering Technology
• Instrumentation & Control Engineering Technology
• Environmental Technician – Water & Wastewater Systems Operation
New Zealand Education Think New

New Zealand Government has announced some changes in post study work rights this month and the move is well received by the New Zealand education aspirants and those who are already studying there. The highlights of the announcement area:

Three-year open work visa for international degree students: It will enable international degree students to apply and consolidate the skills acquired from studying and make an invaluable addition to their curriculum vitae. These changes further position New Zealand as a world-leading study destination for international students wanting to pursue a global career. A streamlined post-study career path for high quality international students builds on New Zealand's Number 1 ranking by the Economist Intelligence Unit as the best country in the world for preparing students for the future.

Changes to New Zealand's immigration settings are: • To provide a three-year post-study open work visa for degree Level 7 (bachelor degree) or above qualifications.
• To remove employer-assisted post-study work visas at all levels
• To provide a one-year post-study open work visa for students studying Level 4 to 6 and non-degree Level 7 qualifications. Students at this level outside of Auckland will be given an additional year (a two-year post-study open work visa) provided study is completed by December 2021. After that point, the entitlement reverts back to a one-year post-study open work visa
• An additional year will be given to Graduate Diploma graduates working towards registration with a professional or trade body.
• International students studying Level 8 qualifications in an area on New Zealand's Long-Term Skills Shortage list may bring their partner (eligible for an open work visa) and dependent children (eligible for fee-free domestic schooling).
• These settings will not impact current post-study work visa holders or international students.
• Through these changes, New Zealand wants to ensure student wellbeing and ensure post-study pathways contribute the skills and qualifications New Zealand needs.
• The changes align with the New Zealand Government's International Education Strategy 2018-2030, which sets a path for the future of New Zealand's international education sector.

Quebec set to overhaul immigration system in bid to address labour force shortages. There were 462,000 job vacancies across Canada in the first quarter of 2018, with Quebec reporting the largest year-over-year increase for the three-month period, according to new figures from Statistics Canada.

Job vacancies in Quebec were up by 25,000 in the first quarter of 2018, an increase of 37 per cent over the first three months of 2017. The new data show job vacancies rising across most provinces, industrial sectors and occupational groups compared to the first quarter of 2017.

Job vacancies rose in eight Canadian provinces and Canada’s three territories, with Quebec and British Columbia posting the greatest increases.

This was the seventh consecutive quarter to show a year-over-year increase in the number of job vacancies in Quebec, with vacancies in the manufacturing and accommodation and food services industrial sectors increasing the most. Montreal was the economic region in Quebec that posted the greatest increase in job vacancies (+8,700) during the quarter.

Quebec’s unemployment rate was 5.5 per cent for the quarter, compared to 6.2 per cent in the first three months of 2017.

Quebec’s Liberal government has estimated that more than one million jobs will need to be filled by 2024, and says immigration has a major part to play in filling this gap.
Effective from September 1st, 2018, international students will no longer be eligible for Manitoba Health coverage. International students enrolled in degree programs at the University of Manitoba will be required to enroll in a private health plan administered by Blue Cross and Student Care. The University of Manitoba will cover the cost of this plan for degree-seeking students from September 1, 2018 – August 31, 2019 to help with the transition between health plans. Dependent and family coverage will be available for purchase for an additional cost; this cost will not be covered by the University.

Students enrolled in the English Language Centre are not eligible for this plan; English Language Centre students will be required to enroll in an alternate health care plan. Details on the provider and the cost of the plan will follow in the coming weeks.
Unscrupulous individuals use the Internet to offer foreign nationals false educational or employment opportunities in Québec. Some claim to represent the government, well-known organizations or large corporations, while others use false documents to convince potential immigrants of the credibility of their proposals.
You should be on your guard, for example:
  • if someone you’ve “met” on a chat site promises that he or she has the necessary contacts to get you into an immigration program abroad for a specific immigration category (e.g. refugee class) to which you do not belong, as well as if they also ask you to find several other people to participate in such a program.
  • if individuals who claim to be representatives of the government, well-known organizations or large corporations use e-mail addresses like Yahoo!, Hotmail or AOL.
  • if they ask you to pay the fees required via a money transfer agent. Reputable transfer agents recommend that you should never use their services to send money to strangers;
  • if you are asked to enter your file number on a website. In fact, the Ministère will never ask you to enter your file number on its website, except on secure platforms for an online application for a Québec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) for studies or an online application for a Québec selection certificate (CSQ) under the Regular Skilled Worker Program (Mon projet Québec).

IRCC intends to implement the Study Direct Stream (SDS) in both India and Vietnam (similar to what is already in place in China and the Philippines) on Feb 01, 2018. The IELTS requirement in India is likely to be raised from an overall score of 6.0 (with no band less than 5.5) to an overall score of 6.0. (with no band less than 6.0.). With momentum for studying in Canada very high in India, it is expected that student numbers will continue to expand. When implemented, SDS will replace SPP in India. Students will be required to purchase a GIC ($10,000) and provide proof of tuition payment for the first year. Online applications will also be accepted.

However the colleges maybe seeking an extension to this start date of 1st Feb , so watch this space for more info !

Students are advised not to panic, but seek visa guidance (if required), from Canadian Government Authorized Consultants who are ICCRC members. Do not get fooled with wrong information by unauthorized consultants.
