COVID-19 readiness plan for DLIs

To be able to reopen to international students who aren’t currently in Canada, DLIs must have a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by their province or territory that

  • protects the health and safety of all students and the surrounding community
  • describes how they will manage the mandatory 14-day quarantine period for international students, including arrangements for transportation to the students’ quarantine location
  • provides information and support to international students about
    • how they can get the items they need for their quarantine, like food and medications
    • health insurance
    • remaining healthy while in Canada

Contact your school directly if you have any questions about its readiness plan.

Studying at an approved DLI

You must be studying at one of the approved DLIs included below to be able 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.

We’ll update this page as more DLIs are approved by their province or territory to reopen to international students who aren’t currently in Canada. If your DLI isn’t on the list yet, check back at the next scheduled update to see if it’s been added. Any DLI that no longer meets its provincial or territorial public health requirements will be removed.
