Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

I don't understand the reason. Did he not have a study permit? Did they say they didn't think he would return back home because of this information?

Customer
my brother indian, flew from india to canada day before and reached canada on Thursday 12pm Canadian time. During his immigration, he was refused the entry because he has valid student visa which he got in february 2021 but he also applied for work permit in march from india and while he applied for work permit "he ticked that he is in canada" so now on his passport there is student permit and work permit (which mentions he is in canada). The immigration officer asked him to return, get his work permit cancelled and come back on student permit
Customer
we are worried if he will be able to re-enter canada without any problem and if this will not create any further issue in the future

I see. It should be OK. He was not in Canada. He misunderstood what he had to fill out.

He gets the study permit from India and he will be able to work if the study permit allows it and it will.

McMaster is an excellent university and there are plenty of international students there. One of my kids did their undergraduate degree there and then went to med school there.  Your brother should contact the international students office there. They should know what happened and also the will be able to guide him.

Does that help?

Customer
he should now contact the canadian embassy and send them an email
Customer
once his work permit is cancelled, the canadian immigration will not create any issue on his re-entry
Customer
is this a case of Deport?

Debra, Expert

He should call the school and the embassy and if he cannot get through to the embassy he should send a webform to Canada Immigration. He was not deported. It should be fine.
