Canada's provinces warned that proposed caps on study permits could close some colleges and universities due to fewer international students. Immigration Minister Marc Miller imposed a two-year cap, reducing permits by over a third. This cap will result in around 364,000 permits, a 35% decrease from 2023, with each province’s cap based on population. Some provinces may increase their international student population, but others, like Ontario, will see significant cuts. This coincides with Post-Graduation Work Permits (PGWP) eligibility changes, which may exclude some private college students.
