Canada Remains Top Int’l Study Destination in 2021

Key Takeaways:

  • Canada remains to be one of the top study destinations for international students.
  • Canada was hailed as the “most attractive study destination.”
  • The number of study permit holders rose from 122,700 to 642,500 between 2000 and 2019.

Canada remains one of the top study destinations for international students, with a massive increase of study permit holders from 122,700 to 642,500 between 2000 and 2019, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

With more and more international students choosing to study in Canada, the government perceives the skyrocketing figure as a promising source of labour. It can also be recalled that Canada was also hailed as the “most attractive study destination” in a recent survey of agents.

Meanwhile, in a Statistics Canada report, it was found that three in 10 international students who went to Canada after 2000 have transitioned to a permanent residence within 10 years since the first time they received their study permits.

Comparing the number of first enrollees from 2000 to 2004, the number of international graduates who first enrolled from 2010 to 2014 and later on transitioned to permanent residency has heightened massively.

This is perceived to be a manifestation of international students pursuing their postsecondary education for the chance of becoming permanent residents rather than taking the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) route.

International graduates who studied in Canada are likely to have possessed the competencies in speaking and understanding the English language to a high standard, thus already proving that they are fit to have a permanent residency in the country.

Good work experience and high-paying jobs are the main reasons for international students to apply for permanent residency after graduation.
