How will the study permit cap change Canada’s reputation in the international student marketplace?

In a recent article for University Affairs, Jadine Ngan investigates the potential impacts of the Government of Canada’s decision to cap international study permits. Ngan questions how this policy will affect the country’s reputation in the international student marketplace and highlights the trepidation expressed by several universities and colleges over the policy, which they are concerned will add pressure to an already financially stressed sector. Ngan cites the concerns of the Migrant Workers Alliance for Change (MWAC), pointing out that some institutions may choose to increase international student tuition in an attempt to recoup the potential losses caused by this policy, thereby further exploiting international students.
