Miller discusses international student caps at TMU Democracy Forum

At the recent Toronto Metropolitan University Democracy Forum, Government of Canada Immigration Minister Marc Miller discussed the recent changes to the international student program. Miller stated that the federal government is willing to step in if the provinces do not allocate international student permits fairly and advised that “good actors”—institutions that have not contributed to the over-enrolment of international students—should not be negatively affected by the cap. Miller also explained that the federal government’s intent is to both limit student numbers and “[reward] those institutions that have the ability to welcome and attract the top talent for which the international visa student program was designed for in the first place.”
