The rotating Foreign Service strike that has affected numerous permanent residence, sponsorship and work permit applications does not appear to be affecting study permits. Postmedia News reports that nearly 50,000 study permits were issued just this summer, ahead of the 2013-14 school year. There were still 13000 applications that needed to be processed in August, but the govenrment managed to get to over 80% of received applications well before the start of the school year despite the rotating strikes. Hopefully other applicants will soon learn that other applications are being processed just as efficiently.
