International students: Important message regarding the strike at Canadian visa offices abroad
August 14, 2013
International students – Deadline for late arrival, Fall 2013 term
The current labour dispute at Canadian visa offices abroad may lead to unusual delays in issuing study permits. Some candidates may not be able to obtain their permits until after August 26, the official starting date of the Fall term.
In this situation, HEC Montréal has adopted an exceptional measure to help those students. They will be accepted until Tuesday, September 3.
Candidates who will not receive their study permits on time and cannot be here on September 3 must send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to explain their situation. Please entitle the e-mail: Strike – arrival problems.
Students already holding study permits are expected at HEC Montréal as soon as possible to take part in Orientation week and complete the administrative procedures.
We hope to welcome you very soon at HEC Montréal.
