Immigration Minister says good universities and colleges will not be affected by the federal cap on international students

Immigration Minister Marc Miller stated that the government’s restrictions will not affect colleges and universities that do not contribute to the over-enrollment of international students. He warned that Ottawa may intervene if provinces fail to uphold this. The government has capped international study permits to address housing shortages, aiming to decrease permits by 35% to 364,000. Permits are distributed based on population, and provinces are responsible for allocation. Ontario, hosting 51% of Canada’s international students, will be significantly impacted. Ontario colleges and universities now await the Ford government’s allocation plan, which will be released by the end of the month.
