Canada Surges with Swelling International Students

Canada is witnessing a boom in international students thanks to its low currency, cordial immigration policies and streamlined visa processing. Data shows an 18% increase in international students to 414,285 as of December 2016 compared with 2015’s year-end. It has nothing to do with the ascension of Trump in the U.S.. The country has set a goal of 450,000 by 2022 and the country looks set to reach it “as early as the current year.”

 

“Canada has s done a lot of really good, really smart things recently, particularly with immigration and pathways  and work rights, that have helped raise its profile overall. Canada has always had a reputation for being welcoming and safe,” says the spokesperson of Canadian government.

 


China remains Canada’s largest source country for international students.
