Canada Advances Work Permit Deadline for International Students

Canada has extended the deadline for issuing work permits to international students graduating from public-private partnership programs from September 1st to May 15th. The move aims to prevent schools from adjusting their admission dates in anticipation of the policy change.

This decision follows the Canadian government’s plan to implement a two-year cap on international student intake starting in 2024 to manage population growth and housing issues, limiting work permit issuance to postgraduate students upon graduation.

The stricter regulations for international students since October 2023 aim to alleviate pressure on housing, healthcare, and other services, impacting Ontario province significantly, with an estimated loss of approximately 133,000 international students due to the ruling.
