Nova Scotia's International Student Visa Quota Cut by 35%

Nova Scotia's international student visa quota slashed by 35% as part of Canada's nationwide effort to reduce applications. The province's allocation for 2024-25 is 12,900, down by 7,000 from the previous year. The move aligns with Ottawa's goal to cut international student applications by 35%. Nova Scotia universities must now share the reduced quota, with details pending on the allocation method. This reduction is among the first revealed provincial allocations by the federal government. The decision comes amid broader measures, including updated cost-of-living requirements, confirmation of acceptance by post-secondary institutions, and upcoming pilots to support underrepresented international student cohorts in 2024.
