Here is an extract of the announcement:
“Submit your complete study permit application for the Fall 2021 semester
If we receive your complete study permit application by May 15, 2021, you’ll get a decision by August 6, 2021, in time to attend the fall semester.
We may not be able to process your application by August 6, 2021 if you’re unable to submit a complete application because of COVID-19 restrictions, such as reduced service at:
- visa application centers (VACs)
- other providers
If you submit a complete application after May 15, 2021, we will process it as quickly as possible—but you may not get a final decision before the fall semester begins.”
