"In view of growing anti-India activities and politically-condoned hate crimes and criminal violence in Canada, all Indian nationals there and those contemplating travel are urged to exercise utmost caution. Recently, threats have particularly targeted Indian diplomats and sections of the Indian community who oppose the anti-India agenda. Indian nationals are therefore advised to avoid travelling to regions and potential venues in Canada that have seen such incidents," the Ministry of External Affairs said.
The Ministry assured that its 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 living in Canada.
"Given the deteriorating security environment in Canada, Indian students in particular are advised to exercise extreme caution and remain vigilant," it added.
The EAM has also advised the Indian nationals and students from India in Canada to also register with the High Commission of India in Ottawa or Consulates General of India in Toronto and Vancouver to enable authorities to connect with the Indian citizens in situations of emergencies or untoward incident.
The citizens can do so through the authorities' respective websites, or the MADAD portal madad.gov.in.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Canadian government had issued a travel advisory asking citizens to avoid all travel to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir due to the unpredictable security situation.
"There is a threat of terrorism, militancy, civil unrest and kidnapping. This advisory excludes travelling to or within the Union Territory of Ladakh," said Canada in its updated travel advisory for India.
The advisory has been issued amid ruckus over killing of a Khalistani leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, in Canada.
