Select colleges and universities across Canada have officially been approved to begin welcoming international students again. While the COVID-19 pandemic has brought most international travel to a halt, Canadian learning institutions will be able to bring foreign students back to their campuses again as long as certain requirements are met.
If you plan to come to Canada as an international student, your designated learning institutions must be on the list with approved #COVID19 readiness plans before you travel. Please be reminded that all travellers must have a plan to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Canada.— IRCC (@CitImmCanada) October 21, 2020
Overseas students coming to study in Canada must also meet government regulated criteria.

While not all Canadian learning institutions are currently listed, more colleges and universities will be added to the list once their provincial or territorial government approves them.
What This Means For Canada Campus Visits
Only students traveling for a non-optional purpose will be admitted entry into Canada for the time being. As a result of this, campus tours for international students are not likely going to proceed. Our website can still be used as a resource to learn about post-secondary education in Canada though. Use the links below to discover more about different institutions across the country and view helpful campus tour videos on each page. When travel restrictions are lifted you can join us in Canada when we can visit campuses together again.
