Indian students express concern, postsecondary institutions provide resources as diplomatic tensions between Canada, India continue


Indian students who are interested in or currently studying in Canada are concerned about the impacts that the diplomatic tensions between Canada and India could have on their postsecondary education. Sources report that students are afraid about a possible backlash and shared their concerns that Canada may stop issuing Indians student visas or that they may experience visa delays. Several Canadian postsecondary institutions have also responded to the tensions: The University of Prince Edward Island reassured students that the university is a safe place and expressed its commitment to the health and wellbeing of Indian students, while both Niagara College and Thompson Rivers University said that they are monitoring the situation and providing resources to those in need of support.
