This November, Dalyce Newby, International Student Advisor in the International Centre and Nassime Yahyaei, Immigration Advisor from the University of Toronto, will be presenting “Reading Between the Lines: Controversial Immigration Advising Cases” at the Canadian Bureau for International Education Annual Conference.
This will be an interactive session that you will not want to miss! Participants will be engaged by challenging immigration advising cases that impact all areas of international student life in Canada. Participants will also be able to discuss their own stories and experiences and compare their own views with the presenters’ best practices. This event is sure to spark an interesting debate among presenters and international students alike.
The following are a few of the controversial cases of interest:
- Institution letters that hinder applications for visa, study permit and work permit
- On and off-campus work eligibility of International students who are obliged to take a part-time course-load during their final two academic terms
- Common criminal and medical misrepresentations
This will be a great opportunity to educate yourself on current immigration policies and the way they may affect your international study experience in the future. We hope to see you there!
