Notice for all upcoming travel:
The safety of Ryerson community members is of utmost importance. Ryerson has suspended all future university-sanctioned international travel and in-person activity abroad for students until the end of the fall 2021 semester. Ryerson urges faculty members to carefully consider any upcoming travel plans. When possible, consider cancelling your plans entirely, or postponing to a later date and delaying financial commitments.

Update: Ryerson University’s readiness plan to welcome international students
As was announced by the federal government earlier this fall, all post secondary institutions must have a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by their provincial government to be able to welcome international students.
Effective November 17th, Ryerson's readiness plan has been approved by the federal and provincial governments.
In addition to Ryerson University’s approved COVID-19 readiness plan, international students must be eligible to enter Canada through possession of a valid study permit or letter of introduction issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). For more information related to travel to Canada please visit this webpage, external link. If you are unclear about your eligibility to enter Canada, please contact International Student Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ryerson International’s vision for global learning at home and abroad refers to activities that engage with the diversity of the world’s cultures, knowledge systems, worldviews, perspectives, and nations (i.e. diverse ways of knowing and being).
Our hope is that these activities are shaped by Ryerson’s unique vision to advance equity and community inclusion, alongside our community’s commitment to prepare students to face the world’s interconnected, global challenges while respecting and engaging with diverse, multifaceted perspectives and approaches.
