January 7, 2019
New program delivery instructions (PDIs) are available for the purpose of assessing if a study permit holder is or has been compliant with study permit conditions, per subsection 220.1(1) of the Immigration, Refugee and Protection Regulations.
These PDIs support the International Student Compliance Regime, which was launched in 2014, following regulatory changes that require all study permit holders to actively pursue their studies while in Canada. These PDIs also provide clarity regarding Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s definition of “actively pursuing studies”.
