Jain Immigration Law founder, Ravi Jain was recently quoted in an article discussing escalating tensions between India and Canada following accusations related to the murder of a Khalistani activist.
India suspended visa issuance in Canada, prompting Canadian PM Justin Trudeau to call for Indian cooperation in an official investigation into the murder. Immigration lawyers in Canada, including Mr. Jain, believe there is little long-term concern for Indian nationals in Canada despite these diplomatic issues. While some Indo-Canadians of Sikh background express unease, others aren’t surprised by Trudeau’s actions.
The article also mentions concerns among parents of Indian students in Canada regarding their children’s safety amid escalating geopolitical tensions. Saurabh Arora, CEO of University Living, advises students to remain patient and informed, avoiding hasty judgments. He encourages students to stay updated and make informed decisions about their education in Canada as the situation develops.
Data from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada reveals that a record number of Indian students, 226,450, went to study in Canada in the previous year, making up a significant portion of the international student population in Canada.
