Lester B Pearson Vocational College operating under the jurisdiction of Lester B Pearson School Board is a Designated Learning Institution under the recently introduced International Students Program (ISP).
Effective June 1, 2014 Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) introduced changes to the International Student Program. Please visit CIC website to see how this may impact you.
New rules aim to protect Canada’s international reputation for high-quality education and improving services to genuine students.
The new rules will:
limit the issuance of study permits to applicants who will be studying at a designated learning institution, including institutions that are designated by provinces and territories on the basis of meeting minimum standards;
require students to actively pursue their studies while in Canada; and
allow full-time international students enrolled at designated institutions in certain programs to work part time off campus and full time during scheduled school breaks without a work permit.
The Citizenship and Immigration Call Centre can answer questions in English and French about the new rules. Call Centre telephone number: 1-888-242-2100
