Health Care Safety Advisory

Wash Your Hands

Using soap and warm water, wash your hands frequently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds. Don’t forget to wash your palms, back of hand, between fingers, under nails and thumbs.

Keep Distance

Practice at least one of the following safe distance measures: Social distancing, Quarantine and Isolation. These measures will assist in  slowing down the spread of coronavirus.

Avoid Touching

Avoid touching your face including your eyes, nose and mouth to prevent respiratory infections from entering the body. Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing. Used tissue should be disposed safely as well.

Face Mask

Wear face masks in public areas. Ensure your hands are cleaned with an alcohol-based sanitizer or soap and water before wearing the mask and while using it.

Stay Home

Stay at home as much as possible to reduce exposure to other people. If you have recently returned to Canada from travel, you must self-isolate regardless of if you have the symptoms or not.

Stay Informed

Have access to accurate reliable and up-to-date information on COVID-19 illness. This will keep you informed and better prepared to handle the virus, reduce stress levels, anxiety and depression.

Re-Opening

As an employer, develop and implement a COVID-19 safety plan that outlines the policies, guidelines and procedures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. An employee should exercise their right to refuse unsafe work.

Good Practice

Practice physical distancing by staying 2 metres away from others in public.  Avoid shaking hands. Seek medical attention if you experience symptoms like fever, cough and difficulty in breathing.

Immigration Pandemic Updates

New Submissions

Most applications are still being accepted and processed. However, the processing time for certain immigration streams are taking longer due to COVID-19. Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada is placing priority on Canadians returning to Canada, vulnerable groups and people who perform or support essential services. 

Online submissions are still being accepted and processed. Most Visa Application Centers outside Canada are temporarily closed due to COVID-19. For this reason, IRCC is experiencing difficulty receiving and processing applications submitted either by mail or in person at a Visa Application Centre.

 

International Students

International students with a valid or approved study permit before March 18, 2020 are exempted from travel restrictions provided they pass a health check and have a quarantine plan prior to arriving in Canada.

Where classes have been moved to an online-only format due to COVID-19, students can complete 50% of the program online and outside Canada and still qualify for a Post-Graduation Work Permit.

With a valid work permit, an international student can work full time during scheduled breaks in the academic year or a maximum of 20 hours per week during an academic session. If working in an essential service, you can work more than 20 hours till August 31, 2020 provided you are a study permit holder in an academic session and eligible to work off campus.

Active Applications

IRCC offices abroad and Case Processing centers within the Centralized Network and Domestic Network will continue to process applications that has been submitted and received in their office.  However, there might be delays in processing applications.

Stranded Abroad

Canadians who are stranded abroad can either use their own personal funds to arrange their return to Canada or apply for an emergency repayable loan. The emergency repayable loan will aid in facilitating return to Canada and covers the basic essential needs prior to arriving in Canada.

Visitors

Canada has imposed travel restrictions for most foreign nationals due to COVID-19. As a result, the processing of non-essential visitor visa applications has been suspended.
