Canada additionally takes the perspectives of the stakeholders into thought. For instance, it worked with Designated Learning Institute (DLIs), like schools and colleges and had decided to ease restriction on the study permits in October 2020


Also, Canada will probably consider the perspectives on DLIs with regards to India’s travel ban. Indian student account reaches somewhere in the range of 30% of the Canada’s global students.

Canada is also hoping to seek after a desire Immigration Levels Plan, as it looks Canada had invite 401,000 new lasting residents this year. Somewhere in the range of 20% come from India every year.


Lifting the travel ban and permitting Indian travelers to come to Canada will be important to accomplishing the immigration target.

Client Testimonial

MBBS Abroad is a big decision and your success depends upon the honesty of your consultant. It is a long process starting from choosing the right college to reaching there at college door step and finally studying there for next 5-6 years. You are in a new country without many old friends. We were sure to approach a consultant who is based out of our district only so that not only during admission but for next 6 years, we can have smooth interactions. So, we approached GKWorks as they have a branch in Saharanpur. As we anticipated, there are lot of things to be done during admission process that goes for 3-4 months. At every step, it was useful for us to have our consultant who was only 20 minutes’ drive from our home. We were able to discuss everything face to face any day and thus were able to have easy process.
