International and New-to-Canada Student Orientation

International & New-to-Canada Student Orientation at the IEC is mandatory for international students, permanent residents, and new immigrants. 

Our International & New-to-Canada Student Orientation will take place on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 from 9:30am to 3:30pm (lunch will be provided) and will allow students to:

  • Learn where to access essential information about immigration requirements for international students;
  • Learn how to enroll in the mandatory University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) and access health services;
  • Learn about social and cultural adjustment and ways to adapt to the new country, culture and academic environment;
  • Have the opportunity to participate in fun activities where you will meet fellow international, new-to-Canada and domestic students.

Orientation activities will continue throughout the month of September for all students who are interested in internationally focused events and activities. Join us for a trip to Niagara Falls, come get your study permit checked, obtain a Social Insurance Number (SIN), and learn how to make the most of UTM’s Study Abroad and International Internship experiences.
