Are you a student who wants to study in Canada? If so, you must be up-to-date on the considerations and challenges Canadian international students face regarding PR. This blog will give you a better insight into the situation.
The latest data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) showcases a favorable trend for Canadian international students. The pathway to transition from student to permanent resident (PR) has increased in popularity.
Details About The Numbers
In 2005, Canada opened doors for 8,565 former international students to become permanent residents. Moving on to 2023, the number has gone up to 19,330 just in the first three quarters.
In 2023, Ontario opened its doors to 6,760 permanent residents, making it the province with the highest number of PRs with previous study permit holder status. There have been shifts in other provinces as well. British Columbia reached second place by admitting 4,195 PRs in 2023, followed by Quebec and Alberta.
Challenges & Considerations
When looking at the surging numbers, it’s important to know that studying Canada doesn’t promise a PR status. In 2022, Canada admitted 550,000 new international students. Senators Ratna Omidvar, Hassan Yussuf, Sabi Marwah, and Yuen Pau Woo gave a report cautioning the limited PR spot compared to the significant inrush of international students.
The reports give a warning regarding misleading information from an education consultant. Many students get cornered into a tight spot after finding out their applied institute doesn’t qualify them for post-graduation work permits.
Canada is committed to bringing international students, as seen by its evolving immigration policies. However, you must be well-informed about the Canadian PR process. Keep yourself up-to-date with Canada Immigration News.
