Important Update Regarding Travel

International students traveling to Canada and Manitoba must follow government regulations for the COVID-19 pandemic to keep travelers and communities safe. It is the law to quarantine or self-isolate for 14 days after your arrival in Manitoba. Not following quarantine instructions may result in financial and/or criminal penalties. We want to help you and ensure our community’s safety. Please make sure you read through the arrival protocol carefully, so that you have a smooth journey to Canada and can start your studies successfully.
