British Columbia's Premier David Eby urges the Federal Government to reconsider its cap on international students, as it greatly reduces the number of foreign postsecondary spaces in the province. Eby suggests exemptions for high-demand fields like truck driving, nursing, and early childhood education. The Federal Government imposed the cap due to unsustainable numbers of international students straining housing and health care. Eby agrees with the cap but seeks reductions that minimize harm to the provincial economy, postsecondary establishments, and students.
