International Students


The NWT uses the criteria (Pan-Canadian Elements) set by the federal Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to recognize Designated Learning Institutions (DLI).

The federal minimum standards for designation criteria have been developed in order to: a) assure the integrity of Canada's International Student Program; b) enhance accountability to International students as well as to Canadians; and c) assure Canada's standing as a destination of choice for international students seeking a quality education.
