Update: Toronto Metropolitan University’s readiness plan to welcome international students

As was announced by the federal government, all post-secondary institutions must have a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by their provincial government to be able to welcome international students. Effective November 17th, Toronto Metropolitan University's readiness plan has been approved by the federal and provincial governments.

In addition to Toronto Metropolitan University’s approved COVID-19 readiness plan, international students must be eligible to enter Canada through possession of a valid study permit or letter of introduction issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
