In response to escalating concerns over the safety and security of Indian citizens and students residing in Canada, the High Commission of India in Ottawa has issued a stern advisory. This advisory calls upon all Indian citizens and students in Canada to register themselves through a dedicated online portal to ensure their safety and well-being.
The advisory, which comes in the wake of growing anti-India activities and politically condoned hate crimes in Canada, underscores the importance of registration for Indian nationals living in the country.
Online Registration Portal
Indian citizens and students in Canada are strongly encouraged to register themselves through the following link: Indian Registration Portal. The registration process is straightforward and allows individuals to provide essential information to the High Commission of India in Ottawa. This information will be vital in the event of emergencies or untoward incidents.
Why Registration Matters: The registration of Indian citizens and students serves several critical purposes:
Emergency Contact: It enables the High Commission of India to establish direct contact with registered individuals in case of emergencies, natural disasters, or security incidents.
Safety and Security: Registered individuals can receive timely updates, advisories, and assistance in navigating any challenges they may encounter during their stay in Canada.
Community Support: Registration helps in the efficient coordination of support and services to the Indian diaspora in Canada, fostering a sense of community and ensuring their well-being.
It should be remembered that the External Affairs Ministry released a thorough advisory for Indian citizens and students in Canada yesterday. Due to the increasing security situation, the Indian government asks all Indian nationals in Canada and those planning to visit to exercise extreme vigilance.
Growing Concerns in Canada
The decision to issue this advisory is in response to a deteriorating security environment in Canada, where Indian nationals and sections of the Indian community have faced threats and hostility. The Indian government, through its diplomatic missions, is committed to ensuring the safety and security of its citizens and students abroad.
This advisory follows Canada’s own travel advisory for India, highlighting the delicate diplomatic relations between the two countries. It is essential for Indian citizens and students in Canada to remain informed, vigilant, and connected with their diplomatic missions during these challenging times.
The High Commission of India in Ottawa remains in close contact with Canadian authorities to monitor the situation and provide assistance to the Indian community. The advisory serves as a proactive measure to safeguard the interests and well-being of Indian nationals in Canada.
As the situation unfolds, it is imperative for Indian citizens and students to heed this advisory and take steps to ensure their safety while residing in or visiting Canada.
