The cap on study permit applications may exceed the initial 35% estimate

Immigration Minister Marc Miller's cap on study permit applications will significantly drop international students coming to Canada this school year. Miller's cap of 606,250 applications is expected to result in a 40% decrease in study permits from last year, higher than the estimated 35%. The actual number of new permits is expected to be around 292,000, significantly lower than the previous estimate of 360,000. This has led to dissatisfaction among some provinces, with Alberta receiving fewer applications than anticipated. Colleges and universities have criticized the cap as it could potentially deter international students and have serious unintended consequences.
