Perspectives on Student Immigration to Canada.

By 18 October 2023February 8th, 2024No Comments

Canada’s education system has always been highly ranked for its quality. Over the years, it has become the preferred study destination for international students. According to federal Immigration statistics, international student numbers have risen dramatically between 2009 and 2019, growing from 50,000 to 143,000 students (a 184% increase). The influx of foreign students not only represents the global acknowledgment of Canada’s education system but also helps Canada’s immigration policy. Various Canadian provinces frequently encourage international students to go through the nomination program after graduation. Following post-secondary graduation, the student can receive a three-year work permit. After working for a year, they will be eligible to apply for permanent residency. However, with the increase in international student numbers, competition is becoming fiercer. In addition, application cut-off dates and admission policies are constantly changing, creating many headaches for parents and students. So far, in 2019, IRCC already issued 182,770 study permits to international students.
