ADVISORY FOR INDIAN STUDENTS IN CANADA

We are disturbed to see a recent spurt in cases of death due to drowning of Indian students in Canada.

All Indian students in Canada are again advised to obey local laws and avoid swimming or diving in lakes or rivers without life vests and other statutory precautions. Those who do not know swimming should avoid trying their hand at learning it without proper supervision.

It has been noticed that at times, groups of students attempt water sports in an inebriated condition; this may result in accidents and fatalities.

Parents back in India work very hard to send their wards to Canada for higher studies. It is the responsibility of every student to avoid any dangerous activity which can cause loss of life and bring misery and suffering to their families.
