Canada responds to report about African international student study permit refusals

The Government of Canada has responded to a report questioning the number of study permits being declined for African international students seeking study permits for Quebec colleges. Representatives from c├ęgeps told CFJC Today that they have seen 80-90% of the study permits for international applicants from Africa denied, leading to challenges with international recruitment and low program enrolment. In response to the report, the federal government has reportedly acknowledged the issues and has committed to working on the study permit process with QC, providing better application process information, increasing training for personnel, and ensuring that those with future immigration plans are not punished.
