IRCC Minister To Announce New International Student Program Improvements

The Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will announce steps to strengthen the International Student Program of Canada on October 27, 2023.


As per the official media availability, Marc Miller will be announcing plans to implement several steps to strengthen Canada’s Foreign Students Program and protect genuine students from fraud.


The announcement will be made at Sheridan College-Davis Campus in Brampton at 10:45 a.m.


Processing times are said to be affecting Canada’s ability to attract top international students, and international student exploitation may damage Canada’s reputation as a destination.


Furthermore, the IRCC has also added waivers based on non-medical compassionate grounds, making it easier for some to get Canadian citizenship.

IRCC will now be offering official language and knowledge of Canada (including responsibility and privileges of citizenship) waivers for citizenship applicants between the ages of 18 and 55 if they fall under certain categories.

IRCC is now offering accommodations to help applicants satisfy the eligibility requirements for the citizenship application.

If an applicant meets all the other citizenship requirements, then IRCC can provide accommodations that may include:

ensuring that any in-person event sites are wheelchair and service animal accessible, and

interpretation services are organized to provide other versions of the study guide, oral or Braille versions of the citizenship knowledge exam, or extra time on tests

New Canadian Citizenship Waivers

Waivers come into play when accommodations are unable to accommodate a client’s demands because they do not meet specific conditions of the Citizenship Act (The Act).There is now a waiver for the oath of citizenship for applicants 14 and older who, due to their mental incapacity to comprehend the significance of the oath of citizenship.

So minors under 14 don’t need to take the oath of citizenship, similar to what is available for applicants aged 55 or older.

Applicants can also request waivers for language or Canadian knowledge requirements under the compassionate grounds listed below.
