The Canadian govt imposed major ban on admission of foreign students.
The Canadian govt has imposed a major ban on the admission of new international foreign students, announcing a two-year ban on admission.
The Canadian province of British Columbia has taken a major step by announcing a ban on new colleges admitting international students until February 2026.
The decision aims to address concerns about the quality of post-secondary education and protect international students from exploitation by institutions.
International students enroll in large numbers at British Columbia’s prestigious universities, but the move now points to stricter regulations in the education sector.
The province plans to introduce minimum language score requirements at private educational institutions and raise labor market conditions and degree standards.
These changes thus underline the government’s commitment to raising educational standards and protecting the interests of international students.
Despite Canada’s goal of enrolling 500,000 permanent residents and 900,000 foreign students by 2023, it faces challenges to drive economic growth.
The country currently faces a housing shortage of 345,000 units, raising concerns about the sustainability of current immigration policies.
The decision to ban international students for two years has been taken to meet the housing shortage in view of population growth.
Decisions like these made at the British Columbia and federal level will pave the way for international education and immigration in the coming years.
