Study in Canada! Record number of international students in Canada for 2012
International students in Canada increasing every year
Every year, the number of international students in Canada grows larger than the year before. There were only about 65,000 international students in Canada during 2004.
“Attracting and retaining the best and brightest immigrants from around the world is part of the government’s commitment to grow Canada’s economy and ensure long-term prosperity,” said Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney. “The steady growth in numbers confirms that Canada remains a destination of choice for international students because of the remarkable educational opportunities that exist in our world class institutions.”
Studying in Canada is a fantastic opportunity for foreign students from around the world, but it is a huge benefit to Canada and Canadians as well.
For example, international students have generated more than $445 in government revenue, have created over 81,000 jobs and bring nearly $8 billion to the Canadian economy every year. The Canadian Experience Class is one reason studying in Canada is so attractive to international students, because it allows foreign students who have work experience to apply for permanent residency. The United States, where students pay much higher tuition costs than in Canada, is also considering implementing a similar program for international students.
