"Yesterday, the premiers and I had another productive meeting. We talked about vaccines, testing, and what we can do to beat this third wave. We also talked at length about borders. Premier Ford asked that we suspend the arrival of international students," said Trudeau.

"We are very prepared to work with provinces and territories on specifically what they need. As the prime minister said when it comes to Ontario, that includes [..] their request at restricting the entry of international students to Ontario institutions," added Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland.

In October 2020, it was announced that international students would be exempt from Canada's international travel ban, allowing them to return to their country of study after months of being locked out.
