Changes to Canada's study permit cap will impact the origins of international students

Canada's new study permit restrictions could impact the diversity of its international student body, as it may result in colleges focusing on recruiting from countries with historically high approval rates. This comes after efforts to diversify student nationality to enrich learning and avoid over-reliance on one nation. The 35% cut in international student intake means institutions, especially in Ontario, could prioritize certain countries to ensure admitted students can attend and pay tuition. High-risk applications, often from African countries with recent enrolment growth, may be avoided due to the limited number of applications processed per province.
