Canada announces cap on the intake of International Students

On Monday, January 22, 2024, the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship of Canada announced a cap on the number of international students Canada will be welcoming in the year 2024 and 2025.

According to the announcement, Canada expects a total of 360,000 international students in the year 2024, that is a decrease by 35% in comparison to the intake of 2023. This total however does not affect those coming in for elementary, secondary, masters and doctorate studies.

IRCC intends to distribute a portion of the cap to each province and territory bearing in mind the population of the different provinces. The provinces will in turn divide the number to approved educational institutions within their jurisdiction.

From Monday, January 22, 2024, each study permit application filed with the IRCC will need to include an attestation letter from a province in order to impose the cap. Provinces and territories have up until March 31, 2024 to set up a procedure for providing attestation letters to students.

By the end of the year, 2024, there will be a reevaluation of the two-year temporary measure by IRCC that will determine the number of study permits that will be issued in 2025.

The Canadian government intends to keep working with educational institutions, stakeholders, all provinces and territories in order to create a sustainable and effective system for international students.

    Howdy! This article could not be written much better! Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I will
    send this information to him. Fairly certain he will have a
    good read. I appreciate you for sharing!
