Quebec’s MIFI will resume processing CAQ applications for international students that have been under suspension following an order it had issued on December 30, 2020.
The suspension was ordered for application for foreign students who attended 10 specific private colleges. The investigation has been conducted by the Ministry of Higher Education.
As per rules, those who wish to study in Canada in Quebec must get a CAQ along with a study permit. MIFI had suspended the applications of candidates routing for the 10 colleges until April 1, 2021, citing public interest as the reason. These institutions are currently under audit by the Ministry of Higher Education.
The colleges that were affected by the suspension appealed MIFI’s decision to the Supreme Court of Quebec and secured injunctions against MIFI’s policy. These colleges are DLIs, meaning educational institutions that are allowed by Quebec toaccept international students who are willing to arrive on a Canada Study visa and have planned to study in Quebec this winter.
The court also ordered MIFI to start the processing of the suspended applications and renewals again.
