LSBF regains right to recruit in Canada

The London School of Business & Finance (LSBF) has won back the right to recruit students to its campus in Toronto.
According to Ontario’s Ministry of Training, Colleges & Universities, the firm is now correctly registered with the province, and can enrol new students to its ACCA accounting courses.
Recruitment was put on hold last April, after LSBF failed to register with the province and was deemed ‘unapproved’ to offer certain courses. Existing students were allowed to complete their studies, but the firm was fined C$64,000 (£38,000) for failing to comply with a ministry order on time. 
LSBF disputes the decision, which is still the subject of ongoing legal proceedings, and says it has always acted lawfully in Ontario. 
However, a spokesman for the firm told EducationInvestor: “We are back online in Canada and fully open for business and will be speaking to students over the next few days to discuss their individual options.”
LSBF delivers business, vocational and English language courses at campuses in the UK and Asia as well as Canada.
