Visa processing times for students travelling to Canada could be less than government estimates according to Languages Canada, while students in India are still struggling to secure visa appointments at Visa Application Centres.
Canadian public schools aren’t doing enough to promote the country’s unique French/English bilingual society new research commissioned by the Canadian Association of Public Schools - International (CAPS-I) has found. The single most significant reason high school students choose to study in Canada for French language acquisition is the country’s bilingual environment it reports.
Canadian public schools voiced their concerns about bill C-35 at this year’s CAPS-I conference in Toronto, complaining that the reform was making them “jump through hoops” to recruit international K-12 students. The bill, enacted in March 2011, makes it an offence for anyone other than an “authorised representative” of the government to advise on a students’ visa application for a fee.
