Newfoundland and Labrador's Immigration Minister seeks clarity from Ottawa on the study permit cap

Newfoundland and Labrador's Immigration Minister, Gerry Byrne, calls for clarity from Ottawa on mixed signals about the study permit cap. He suggests the federal government's position on international student numbers for the upcoming school year is uncertain. Initial optimism about an increase in international students has waned, with Byrne stating that the potential growth story has changed to a narrative of stagnation. This concern extends to other Atlantic Canadian provinces, with the Council of Atlantic Premiers (CAP) expressing worries about international student enrollment and differences in study permit application approval rates among provinces.
