While COVID-19 has greatly affected post-secondary students and institutions across Canada, new research shows the pandemic has resulted in only a small decline in international student enrolments nationwide. This is especially the case for students applying for study permits to the Yukon, with international student enrolment at Yukon University — the first in Canada's North — now returning to pre-pandemic levels. The study was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Can

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Five U.S. lawmakers met with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen on Friday in a surprise one-day visit intended to reaffirm America's “rock-solid” support for the self-governing island that is claimed by China. The visit came as tensions between Taiwan and China have risen to their highest level in decades. Taiwan has been self-ruled since the two sides split during a civil war in 1949, but China considers the island part of its own territory. China was quick to condemn the tr
Tens of thousands of Indian farmers marched overnight to reinforce protesting colleagues camping on the outskirts of the capital New Delhi to mark a year of sustained demonstrations against three farm laws introduced last year. Seeking to end the longest-running farmers' protest that galvanised growers across the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week bowed to the protesters' demand to repeal the controversial laws introduced in September 2020. Modi, striking a conciliatory note, promised his government would repeal the laws in the new session of parliament, starting next week.

One hundred and thirty children in P.E.I. received the COVID-19 vaccine on Friday — the first day the shot was available to five to 11-year-olds. A pediatric vaccine clinic was held at the County Fair Mall in Summerside, P.E.I. "I think it's important because it can help protect others," said 10-year-old Alex DesRoche.

P.E.I. Premier Dennis King says he will "work around the clock" to get a suspension on the export of potatoes from the province to the United States lifted. The suspension was ordered on Monday by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency after the discovery of potatoes infected with potato wart in two P.E.I. fields in October. Federal Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau said Canada issued the suspension to prevent the U.S. from taking similar action, which might be more difficult to reverse. "It
A Quebec City daycare accused of mistreating children and from which three toddlers escaped last month has received a government warning that it could lose its licence to operate. Quebec's Family Ministry confirmed it gave the owners of Jardin Enchanté, Geneviève Côté and Richard Cazes, a notice of intent to revoke their licence. "It appears from the ministry's examination of this file that the daycare breached the law several times," ministry spokesperson Bryan St-Louis told Radio-Canada. The o

Anan Lololi pulls leafy bunches of kale from the cold November ground at the Ujamaa Farm in North York. "To make some kale juice," the executive director of Afri-Can FoodBasket suggests, moving on to rows of vegetables used in the Caribbean dish callaloo.

Liberals have introduced a two-for-one piece of legislation that would provide sick leave to some workers, and bring the law down on anyone harassing health-care employees. The bill would provide 10 days of paid sick leave to federally regulated workers and create two new offences in the Criminal Code: one for anyone threatening a health-care worker and a second for anyone obstructing access to a health-care facility.
