Saudi students in Canada ordered to leave before September

Saudi students in Canadian universities have been given four weeks to pack their bags and leave the country.
Universities across Canada are scrambling to get information after Saudi Arabia suspended scholarships to Canada and planned to relocate its students already here.

University of Toronto vice-provost Joseph Wong said Saudi students have received notification telling them they have a month to finish their studies and leave Canada.

Media reports suggested Saudi Arabia would cancel scholarships for more than 15,000 students currently attending school in Canada.

Wong pointed out that Universities Canada, a consortium of the country’s universities and colleges, has expressed its concerns to Ottawa about the future of Saudi students.

On Tuesday, the gulf between Ottawa and Saudi Arabia widened to encompass travel as the Middle Eastern country’s state airline announced it was suspending operations in Canada.
