According to new IRCC data, Canada has about 807,750 foreign students.
Besides that, as of December 31st, 2022, there are 807,750 international students with valid study permits, an all-time high.
In recent years, the number of educational permits issued has significantly increased.
In 2021, a total of 444,260 new study permits will be issued, up from 400,600 in 2019. (With 2020 seeing a decrease due to the COVID-19 pandemic). This means that 107,145 more study permits became available in 2022 than in 2021.
As a result, the number of students in Canada has increased noticeably. There were 637,860 international students in Canada in 2019. Due to pandemic stress and pressure, this number dropped in 2020 but rebounded in 2021 to a total of 617,315 international students in the country. The country has experienced a relative return to normality last year.
In 2022, the 10 largest source countries for new international students coming Into a country were:
India (226,450 students); China (52,165 students); the Philippines (23,380 students); as well as France (23,380 students) (16,725 students)
Nigeria has 16,195 students, Iran has 13,525 students, the Republic of Korea has 11,535 students, Japan has 10,955 students, Mexico has 10,405 students, and Brazil has 10,405 students.
Furthermore, as of 31 December 2022, the 10 leading source countries of international students already living and studying in Canada were:
- India (319,130 students);
- People’s Republic of China (100,075 students);
- Philippines (32,455 students);
- France (27,135 students);
- Nigeria (21,660 students);
- Iran (21,115 students);
- Republic of Korea (16,505 students);
- Vietnam (16,140 students);
- Mexico (14,930 students); and
- the United States (14,485 students).
In 2022, international students in Canada attended Higher learning institutions in the following provinces:
- Quebec (93,000 students);
- Alberta (43,000 students);
- Manitoba (22,000 students);
- Nova Scotia (20,850 students);
- Saskatchewan (13,135 students);
- New Brunswick (11,140 students);
- Newfoundland and Labrador (6,175 students); and
- Prince Edward Island (4,485 students).
The outstanding quality of education available in Canada contributes to this solid position. Many Canadian universities rank among the most elite colleges internationally (especially when considering specific programs and faculties). As a result, Canadian schools gain worldwide recognition, which is a crucial factor in attracting international students.
The Canadian dollar’s more beneficial exchange rate leads to better conversions with global currency than its counterparts. This means international students could indeed obtain post-secondary schooling at a lower price compared to many other countries with a comparable level of education, like the U.S. or the U.K. An undergraduate education in Canada costs somewhere between $20,000 and $40,000 CAD on ordinary (depending on the provincial capital, institution, and program of study). Furthermore, Canada provides numerous financial aid programs for international students, further helping reduce money issues.
The ability to work in Canada has also increased Canada’s popularity among international students. International graduates in Canada are eligible to receive a Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP) upon completion of their studies. This is an open work permit that allows students to live and work in the country full-time after graduation, and it is an important step in the immigration process for international graduates in Canada (more on this later). International graduates in Canada have a high employment rate, with an average of 73% across all levels of education. Last year, 132,650 full-time students transitioned to workers through the PGWP program, with the number of PGWP holders entering the workforce increasing year after year.
Possibilities for post-graduate immigration
Canada is one of the few nations that allows international students to stay in the country permanently. Furthermore, pursuing a Canadian education is one of the best ways to enhance one’s immigration eligibility.
The bog standard path from student to immigrant encompasses obtaining a PGWP and gaining the minimum required eligible full-time work experience (one year). Students can then apply for permanent residence in Canada through one of the country’s immigration programs. A specific stream has even been created within the Express Entry managed programs with these individuals in mind—the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
Last year alone, 53,725 people made the transition from PGWP to permanent residence, trying to demonstrate both the popularity and communication range of immigration for overseas students seeking to change their status to permanent residents of Canada.
