The number of Canada Study Permit holders in Canada swelled to well over half a million in 2018, government figures show.
On December 31, 2018, there were 572,415 Study Permit holders here, a 16 per cent rise on the 492,425 recorded in 2018.
The figures cover students from high schools, colleges and universities, in Canada benefiting from its world class education system.
Study Permit numbers have increased 180 percent in the last decade, as successive governments have recognized the benefit to the Canadian economy of increasing international student levels.
International students are an important source of revenue for Canada’s schools, paying significantly higher tuition fees than their Canadian counterparts.
With Canadian education much cheaper than across the border in the U.S., Canada’s best universities are often seen as a pathway to a world class education without the dollar outlay required south of the border.
Students from India and China dominate the international student landscape, accounting for 315,610, or 55 percent, of the total Study Permit holders in Canada.
