Canadian Bureau for International Education, Ottawa (Ontario).
Designed for those who work with foreign students attending Canadian universities and colleges and students who intend to study at Canadian educational institutions, the guide outlines the provisions of the 1978 Canadian Immigration Act. The introductory section covers such areas as definitions of visas and student authorizations, the general provisions of the act, working in Canada, health care while in Canada, and admission of spouse after admission of student. The second section discusses the requirements that must be met before the entering student leaves home. The documents needed at the time of entry to Canada are described in the third section. Other sections identify procedures for changes in terms and conditions, going home for the summer or visits, and removal from Canada. An appendix provides excerpts from the Federal-Provincial Immigration Agreements Act. Sample documents are provided including the application for temporary entry, the student authorization, the employment authorization, and application to vary or cancel terms and conditions of admission.
