The Canadian Government is set to impose a national cap to reduce the intake of international students into the country.
Canadian immigration Minister, Marc Miller, during an interview on Sunday with CTV’s Question Period, said the Canadian government will need to have a meeting with provincial governments “to make sure that the provinces that have not been doing their jobs actually rein in those numbers on a pure volume basis.”
“That volume is disconcerting,” Miller said, in reference to the number of international students in Canada. “It’s really a system that has gotten out of control.”
It was earlier reported that Canada had raised its “cost-of-living financial requirement for study permit applicants,” basically for international students, to $20,000 from $10,000 starting from January 1, 2024.
