  • All necessary information and documentation to ensure students are fully informed of Canada’s most up-todate travel and arrival requirements and have a smooth entry process into Canada
  • In-hotel testing services for students in Ontario – Students quarantining in the Toronto or Ottawa areas, where testing at the end of quarantine is required, may book in-hotel PCR testing at special rates

Optional Add-On Flight Package

Along with their Safe Arrival and Quarantine package, students can book their flight to Canada through TRAVEL SAFE at special discounted rates with help from a certified travel agent and take advantage of 24-7 travel support available in multiple languages.

TRAVEL SAFE benefits for LC member programs

Provide your students with an affordable solution
As a non-profit devoted to the well-being of Canada's language education sector and fully aware of the pandemic's impact on students' financial resources, Languages Canada created the Study Safe Corridor TRAVEL SAFE Arrival and Quarantine package looking for cost-effectiveness, while keeping quality and safety as the top priority. Our national presence has allowed us to negotiate the best rates with service providers, and allows you in turn to pass these savings on to your students.

Improve your students' chances of being accepted into Canada
The Study Safe Corridor was developed by Languages Canada in consultation with federal and provincial authorities across the country. It is accepted as the leading instrument for meeting the health and safety needs of international students and Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic, and has become a recognized brand and initiative at IRCC and CBSA. Students coming to Canada with a Study Safe Corridor TRAVEL SAFE Arrival and Quarantine package will be fully equipped to enter Canada in compliance with federal and provincial requirements.

Save your institution's precious time and resources
Using TRAVEL SAFE allows institutions to focus on what they do best: delivering quality educational programs and providing a high-quality Canadian experience, without having to spend time and resources on creating and managing students' quarantine logistics.
