New Brunswick schools call for more action on international students

New Brunswick's postsecondary institutions dispute new federal restrictions on international students. The cap, announced by Immigration Minister Marc Miller, aims to regulate Canada's growth and limit international arrivals. New Brunswick received 9,279 of about 393,000 study permit applications, with a 10% drop from 2023, but adding 5,372 permits, totalling 14,651 for the province. Despite an increase in attestation letters in New Brunswick, the approval rate for study permit applicants remains low. Canadian institutions are collaborating with Ottawa to enhance conversion rates, including demanding first-semester fees before issuing attestation letters.
