Safety

Safety

Canada is one of the most peaceful and orderly countries in the world. Despite this, international students should follow the same common-sense safety precautions in Canada as they would anywhere in the world. Here are some safety tips agents can pass on to students:

  • Call 911 in any emergency (e.g., if students are in trouble or witness to a crime). This is a central number for police, fire and, ambulance throughout Canada. Students should not panic if they are more comfortable speaking in a language other than English; interpreters are available.
  • If robbed, students should not argue or fight. If they are assaulted, they should shout or blow a whistle to draw attention to their situation. They should call 911 immediately.
  • If they are a victim of a crime, no matter how small, they should report it to the police.
  • Students should be cautious with strangers, be aware of who and what is going on around them, and trust their instincts and leave uncomfortable situations.
  • Some areas of cities may have higher crime rates than others. Students should advice for the best routes to take when going out.
  • Students should always tell someone where they are going and when they will return. At night they should always walk on well-lit, busy streets. If possible, they should travel with a friend and avoid isolated areas, such as parks or alleys.
  • Most universities will have campus security. This can take several forms, including patrol cars, 24-hour telephone lines, and well-lit areas where students can contact the campus security office. Some universities also offer a “walk home” service where qualified students will walk their peers home, or to another location, after dark.
  • Students should not hitchhike.
  • Taxis are a good way to get home when at night. Students should know the number of a taxi company so they can easily phone one if necessary. Canadian taxis should have running meters showing the cost of the ride. Taxi drivers will not expect to negotiate a price with their passengers.
  • When biking, wear a helmet; it is mandatory in most of Canada. At night, cyclists should use front and rear bike lights and wear reflective clothing. There are many bicycle paths in urban areas across Canada. Students should try to take these as often as possible, and remember to keep to the right side of the road.
  • Students should arrange a ride home beforehand if they plan to drink alcohol. They should not accept a ride home from a stranger in a bar. They should NEVER drink and drive. Doing so is not only dangerous and irresponsible; it is a serious criminal offence. They should not accept drinks from strangers or let their drink out of sight. If you they do leave it unattended, they should order a new drink. Drugs can be put into drinks when people are not paying attention
