As of October 20, 2020, some designated learning institutions (DLIs) are now able to reopen to international students who are not currently in Canada and who
- have, or have been approved for, a study permit
- are travelling to Canada for a non-discretionary or non-optional purpose
You must be studying at one of the approved DLIs included below to travel to Canada. We will only add DLIs if their provincial or territorial government has approved their COVID-19 readiness plan.
If your DLI isn’t included below, you can’t travel to Canada to study at this time. If you try to travel to Canada when your DLI isn’t included, you may not be allowed to board your flight, or you may be turned away at the port of entry.
Family members who will be coming with you to Canada can’t travel to Canada before you do.
