McMaster’s COVID-19 readiness plan for all incoming international students

McMaster University has updated its COVID-19 Readiness plan with both local and provincial governments. The COVID-19 readiness plan is mandatory for all new and returning students.

Recommendation for international student arrival dates

McMaster recommends that international students should not arrive in Canada more than four weeks before program start dates. If you choose to arrive earlier than four weeks before your program starts, you may be denied entry by the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) if you do not have a valid reason for your early arrival.
