However, the advisory has added that it will remain in touch with Canadian authorities to ensure the safety and well being of Indian nationals in Canada.
It adds, “Our High Commission/Consulates General will continue to be in contact with the Canadian authorities to ensure the safety and well being of the Indian community in Canada.”
In the wake of deteriorating security environment, the Ministry has urged Indian nationals and students to register with India’s High Commission in Ottawa or other consulates including those in Toronto and Vancouver. The advisory has also included the website link for the MADAD portal.
It further states that given the deteriorating security environment in Canada, Indian students in particular are advised to exercise extreme caution and remain vigilant.
It further said, “Indian nationals and students from India in Canada must also register with the High Commission of India in Ottawa or Consulates General of India in Toronto and Vancouver through their respective websites or the MADAD portal madad.gov.in. Registration would enable the High Commission and the Consulates General to better connect with Indian citizens in Canada in the event of any emergency or untoward incident.”
