First, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Lakehead University!
As we are all well aware, the situation with the pandemic has changed how we do things and as an international student entering a PhD program, you may have questions about what to expect.
You will find information on the Lakehead University website: https://www.lakeheadu.ca/about/coronavirus#updates and the Government of Canada website: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/coronavirus-covid19/students.html#exemptions
Also, Lakehead University International has some helpful information here: https://www.lakeheadu.ca/international/current/before
You can make appointments for advising about topics like study permits, visas, airport pick-up and more here https://10to8.com/book/lakeheadintliss/
LUI also has a COVID-19 International Student Safe Travel, Arrival and Quarantine Resource Guide and Plan where you can plan for your arrival and submit your Quarantine Plan.
