Ontario allocated international student applications for the labour market

The Ontario Government will prioritize study permits for postsecondary programs at public institutions, focusing on high-demand areas such as skilled trades, health, STEM, hospitality, and childcare. The province will exclude career colleges from receiving international student applications and prioritize French-language enrollment. According to the new announcement, the number of study permits for each institution in 2024 cannot exceed those issued in 2023, with the ratio of international permits capped at 55%. All public universities, except Algoma University, and 11 of 24 public colleges will maintain 2023 application levels. The most significant decline will be in public-private college partnerships and Conestoga College.
