Canada to reduce intake of international students by 35% this year

Canada is all set to reduce the intake of international students by 35% this year. Immigration minister Marc Miller on January 22 said that Canada will cap the number of student visas over the next two years.

For 2024, Miller said that the federal government will approve 360,000 undergraduate study permits.

Addressing a press conference, Miller said that his government aims to address concerns over the impact of growing numbers of international students on the housing market and target institutions engaging in what he calls "unethical practices".

"It's unacceptable that some private institutions have taken advantage of international students by operating under-resourced campuses, lacking supports for students and charging high tuition fees all the while significantly increasing their intake of international students," Miller said.

The cap will be in place for two years and the number of visas to be issued in 2025 will be reassessed at the end of this year.

Miller said the government will also prohibit students in schools that follow a private public model from accessing postgraduate work permits as of Sept. 1.

"To be absolutely clear, these measures are not against individual international students. They are to ensure that as future students arrive in Canada, they receive the quality of education that they signed up for and the hope that they were provided in their home countries."

He said that students applying to masters and PhD programs will be exempt from the cap.

The work permits will only be available for the spouses of students enrolled in masters and doctoral programs, as well as professional programs such as medicine and law.
