Why Massive Drops in Canada’s Study Permits?

Canada has imposed 2 years cap on international student visas this year to tackle the problem of some bad actors taking advantage of high international student tuition while providing poor education. This will lead to the approval of only 360,000 study permits, which is a massive drop of 35% from 2023. Be the lucky fella and grab a seat for yourself.

Resolving the housing/ accommodation problem is Canada’s top priority right now. The province’s institutions are instructed to develop international student sustainability plans delineating how students will be given admission, housed, and given access to the labour market.

In view of this instruction, the proposal is that institutions will be required to have on-campus housing for 15% of full-time students. However, unluckily, few – including Dalhousie University and Cape Breton University do not yet have enough accommodation on their campuses. Therefore, they are seeking to reduce their overall enrolment to 7,000 students within four years.
