International students who have failed to secure coveted Canadian job experience due to the pandemic will be given another shot at meeting the necessary requirement for permanent residence.

Ottawa will launch a temporary policy to allow international students with an expired or expiring post-graduate work permit to apply for a new permit that will be valid for 18 months.

International students who graduate from a designated Canadian post-secondary college or university are eligible for a work permit that lasts between one and three years, depending on the duration of their academic programs.

Canadian education credentials and work experience have become increasingly crucial for foreign nationals looking to apply for permanent residence in Canada, which rewards those qualifications with bonus points in the immigrant-selection process.

In 2019, more than 58,000 international students who graduated from a Canadian institution successfully applied to immigrate permanently.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2019 and 2020 cohort was left to confront a grim job market and many international graduates were let go from their employment.
Temporary concessions in response to Covid19 Version 12/2020 This guidance is to be used from 22 December 2020 and covers temporary concessions for:

• Student sponsors
• Students and Child Students (including Tier 4)
• Short-term Student (English Language) migrants (including Short-term Students)

Canada is among the top countries considered to be ‘safe and stable’ for international students and has further improved its position as the ‘go-to’ study destination because of its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is according to two surveys conducted by Navitas Insights.

In addition, the survey suggests that countries considered to be ‘safe and stable’ are not necessarily viewed as being ‘open and welcoming.’ However, Canada is one of the top countries that are considered to be both. In fact, Canada has introduced some measures to allow international students to travel to their desired destination. Students who wish to travel to Canada only need to be attending a college or university that has obtained approval on its COVID-19 readiness plan from the provincial government in which the institution is in. It does not matter where the student is travelling from.

The first survey was conducted in May 2020. Findings from that survey showed Canada as one of the countries who are ahead of the pack, alongside New Zealand and Australia.

Navitas repeated the research in September 2020. Canada had improved its overall position since May, but was now competing with the United Kingdom for the top spot, instead of the Oceanic states.

The UK government has confirmed that Indian students pursuing their higher studies in the UK will be able to access the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine that is being rolled out across the country. Also the UK government expressed its commitment to support international students during Covid-19, with universities’ minister writing an open letter to students thanking them for their patience at provisions introduced to tackle the spread of the virus. The students will not be charged to apply for testing or treatment for Covid-19. The news is particularly welcome as the UK along with many other countries around the world has confirmed the emergence of new strains of the virus.

While the Indian students comply with health measures, the UK has confirmed that it has ordered 40 million doses of this vaccine overall enough to immunize up to a third of the population - with approval of the Oxford vaccine expected within days.
