Canada Asks Indian Students Not to Start Working Before Course Commences, Issues Guidelines

The Canadian government has issued new guidelines for Indian students asking them not to start working abroad before starting their course. In the latest tweet, the Canadian High Commission said, “You can start working only when your study program has started.”

In addition, students traveling to Canada this fall/winter term must undergo verification upon arrival. A border service officer will review their documents. “Be prepared to show that your DLI has allowed you to be late or that you have received a deferral,” the official tweet said.

“Please note that while some study permits allow you to work in Canada, you can only start working when your study program has started, not before,” it added.

The notice comes after a large number of students were found submitting fake documents for their study abroad visas.

Meanwhile, recently, following a rise in hate crimes against Indians, especially Hindus, the Indian government has also issued an advisory for Indian students studying and residing in Canada.

Noting that “there has been a sharp increase in incidents of hate crimes, communal violence and anti-India activities in Canada”, the Ministry of External Affairs has asked Indian citizens, especially students, to ensure registration on the official Indian Embassy websites. In case of any emergency, get in touch with the government at the earliest.

India on Sunday condemned the vandalism of the recently unveiled ‘Shri Bhagavad Gita’ park in Brampton, Canada and urged the authorities to investigate and take swift action against the perpetrators of the hate crime. Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown confirmed the vandalism at the park on Sunday and said Canada has “zero tolerance” for such attacks.

Every year lakhs of Indian students fly to study abroad. In 2019, over 5.86 lakh Indians flew abroad to study. As of June 2022, more than 2.45 lakh students have already left for study abroad. Apart from the usual destinations such as the US, UK, Canada and Australia, new locations including Germany, Philippines, Russia and Singapore are emerging as preferred study centers for Indian students, according to government data.
