Canada has announced to reduce the number of foreign students in the next 2 years. This announcement was made by the country’s Immigration Minister Mark Miller on Monday.

Mark Miller said that Canada will receive 360,000 foreign students in 2024, which is at least 35 percent less than in 2023. Earlier in 2022, there were 8 lakh foreign students in Canada. A decade ago this number was 2 lakh 14 thousand.

Miller said that this decision was made to reduce the number of foreign immigrants in the face of the economic crisis caused by the housing crisis in Canada. In addition, the country will also stop issuing work permits to foreign students who are at graduate and college level and their spouses.

However, this reduction decision will be applicable only to newly applying foreign students. Those applying for renewal will not be covered.

In this regard, the official immigration website of Canada gives details.
