The University of British Columbia is feeling the effects of the travel ban announced by U.S. president Donald Trump.
Spokesperson Susan Danard says approximately 30 staff and faculty members, and between 300-350 students are impacted.
She says it is a loss for the academic community.
Danard says some students will not be able to travel south of the border for conferences as well.
“I think if you look at any scientific breakthrough and any major medical research, it’s always done by an international team collaborating, and it is quite sad to think that that will be limited.”
The travel ban bars passport holders from the seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
