Bev Skinner asks members to please comment on what impact the CIC strikes are having on the delay of Study Permits.
1) Are Districts allowing students to start their studies while they wait for their Study Permits (letting students come in as visitors – without parents, so entitled to go to school)? Once they receive the documentation – Flagpole turnaround? OR Issuing 5 month letters of acceptance and then waiting for their Study Permits to be processed and sent to them?
2) Is it the concensus – no Study Permit, no acceptance?
Their Hockey Academy has about 15 students waiting for the London CIC to go back to work, so they too are asking what we are going to require.
