IRCC announces 292,000 study permit cap for undergraduate programs

The Globe and Mail and CIC News report that the federal government has indicated that the number of new study permits available for college and university undergraduate programs this year is “about 292,000.” Federal Immigration Minister Marc Miller previously announced that about 360,000 new permits would be available in 2024, but the Globe reports that the federal government has since indicated that this figure included students—such as those in graduate programs or K-12 education—who are not subject to the cap. The Government of Alberta and Government of British Columbia have reportedly begun issuing attestation letters, while other provinces are still developing their processing systems.
