Canada suspends visas

1 Nov, 2014

Canada becomes the second developed nation after Australia to close off immigration channels to people from the three Ebola-affected west African countries. Work on permanent-resident applications is also suspended. An immigration ministry spokesman says the measures are different from Australia’s.

We have instituted a pause, but there is room for discretion if we can be assured that someone is not infected with Ebola.
