QC universities reject federal study permit cap suggestion


The leaders of Quebec universities have openly rejected the suggestion that a cap on international study permits could be implemented to ease the housing shortage. Université de Montréal Rector Daniel Jutras said that the housing crisis is a result of structural issues rather than international students. Jutras further pointed to the benefits of having international students in Canada. McGill University Professor Víctor Muñiz-Fraticelli said that the impacts of international students may be greater on smaller communities rather than in larger communities.
