Canada's immigration minister on Thursday announced a slew of new requirements for foreign students wanting to come study in Canada.

Starting next year, Marc Miller said prospective international students will need to show they have access to $20,635 instead of the $10,000 requirement that has been in place for two decades, in addition to paying for travel and tuition.

The amount will be adjusted annually based on a Statistics Canada benchmark for living costs.

Miller also announced the federal Liberals are extending an exemption that allowed current international students without an employment visa to work for more than the 20 hours each week off campus. 

He threatened to cap visas in provinces that don't help house students or who won't shut down educational institutions that he argues shouldn't be operating.

International students will need double the money to study in Canada, Miller says

The announcements drew a lot of feedback and questions from the CBC News audience, especially on the new $20,000 requirement.

Here are answers to some of them.

How will this affect current students and applicants?

The new minimum financial requirements only apply to new study permit applications received on or after Jan. 1, 2024. 

Is the $20K per year or a one-time thing?

The requirement is a one-time thing.

Under the current system, prospective students must show that they have $10,000 in addition to money for their first year's tuition and travel expenses. Under the new system, the $10,000 is increased to $20,635.

Who is eligible to work more than 20 hours a week?

Currently, any international student without an employment visa can work for more than 20 hours a week off campus.

The waiver that temporarily allows students to work over the 20-hour cap was due to expire at the end of 2023, but Miller announced that it will be extended to April 30, 2024 for current students.

International students worry about increased financial requirements

According to a news release : "International students already in Canada, as well as applicants who have already submitted an application for a study permit as of December 7, 2023, will be able to work off campus more than 20 hours per week until [April 30, 2024]."

Miller signalled that the Liberals are open to increasing the cap for when the waiver expires, but he said allowing 40 working hours per week would give people reason to come to Canada and not focus on their studies.

Will this stop diploma 'puppy mills'?

For years, critics have argued that some colleges are providing foreigners with inadequate education while giving them a chance to get visas to work in Canada and to eventually immigrate. Media outlets have reported on students scraping by in exploitative jobs.

"There are, in provinces, the diploma equivalent of puppy mills that are just churning out diplomas, and this is not a legitimate student experience," Miller said at a news conference.

"There is fraud and abuse and it needs to end."

Students duped by alleged immigration scam

For now, no new actions have been announced targeting any specific colleges. 

The punitive threat of reducing visas to schools that rely on international students may, in theory, spur offending institutions to clean up their act. But Miller passed the buck to provinces to do something.

  • Federal government hikes income requirement for foreign students, targets 'puppy mill' schools
  • The Fifth Estate International students enticed to Canada on dubious promises of jobs and immigration

Miller said the measures are meant to ensure international students aren't vulnerable to sketchy employers and "unscrupulous" schools that leave them unable to afford life in Canada.

"Clearly, we have become a country that has been targeted for abuse and exploitation by some unsavoury actors," he said. It's unclear if any tangible crackdown will come from Miller's remarks. 

How does this benefit international students?

Some observers say  the new financial requirement is a step toward being open and transparent with prospective international students about the cost of living and studying in Canada.

  • International students say they want to study in Canada, but staying is a problem if they can't find housing
  • 2 B.C. private colleges accused of shortchanging international students through misleading tactics

Wanda Cuff-Young, vice-president of operations at international recruiting agency Work Global Canada, said the additional funding requirement is a good step to combat fraud, but wonders if doubling the amount of money needed all at once is too much right away.

"Maybe it could have been phased in. But Canada needs students," Cuff-Young said.

Preparing for your travel to canada, what to expect when you arrive in canada, social insurance number, eligibility.

Before you travel to Canada, make sure you are eligible to enter and that you have all the documents you need. To enter Canada as a student you must :

  • have a valid study permit or a letter of introduction that shows you were approved for a study permit, unless you don't need one ; and
  • be attending a designated learning institution .

We encourage you to travel to Canada as early as possible after you receive your documents to avoid the busy travel period in late August, early September, and in early January.

Documents required

If you have applied for a study permit (and work permit, if applicable) and have not yet received your visa and/or letter of introduction, do not travel to Canada until you have received these documents . Be sure to review all your documentation and ensure your information is correct before travelling. If not, please contact Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada .

Have in your possession all of the documents required before you travel to Canada. Do not place any of these documents in your checked luggage .

To enter Canada, you must have:

  • a valid travel document, such as a passport
  • the port of entry letter of introduction the visa office sent you when they approved your study permit or a valid study permit if it was previously issued
  • a copy of a valid letter of acceptance from your school
  • a valid Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), a valid visa, a valid green card (or equivalent official proof of U.S. status ) or another valid travel document
  • proof of funds to support your stay in Canada
  • no criminal or immigration-related convictions (unless pardon has been granted or deemed rehabilitated)
  • valid immigration medical exam results, if applicable ( find out if you need a medical exam ) and be in good health

If you do not have all of these documents, you may experience delays during the immigration processing and/or you may be refused entry.

When you arrive in Canada, you may experience longer border processing wait times in order to complete all necessary paperwork.

A border services officer (BSO) will direct you to where you need to go to complete your study permit application. Some airports have a special processing area for international students arriving in Canada. Please watch for signage that may be directing you to this designated area.

Once you receive your study permit, before leaving the student processing desk, make sure to carefully review the information indicated on the permit and correct any errors.

Quarantine, isolation and testing upon arrival in Canada

Fully vaccinated travellers, as well as certain categories of individuals , are not required to quarantine upon arrival in Canada, unless otherwise directed. If you are ordered to quarantine or isolate by a Government of Canada official, you must demonstrate that you have a suitable quarantine or isolation  plan.

When you arrive in Canada you may be required to undergo COVID-19 molecular testing , even if you are fully vaccinated.

For more information: Canada.ca/ArriveCAN

To work in Canada or to access government programs and benefits, you require a nine-digit number known as a Social Insurance Number ( SIN ).

Apply for your SIN

You can apply for your SIN using one of these options:

Applying online for your SIN is quick and easy. The eSIN portal offers a secure and protected environment where you can complete your SIN application and upload digital copies of your documents.

-->Service Canada may be in your community offering one of their clinics that issue a SIN at educational institutions or community organizations near you. Contact the International Student Centre at your educational institution for more information.

If you are unable to apply online or attend a SIN clinic, we recommend you book an appointment at a nearby Service Canada Centre and bring all the required documents .

You can choose to mail your completed SIN application form and all required documents to the Social Insurance Registration Office.

For more details, visit Social Insurance Number – Apply .

Once your application is complete, Service Canada will issue a paper confirmation that includes your unique SIN . Your SIN is confidential and you should protect it. To learn more about the SIN and how to apply visit: Social Insurance Number – Overview .

Immigration documents, when you can travel, booking your flight(s), driving across the border, get advice on whether you should travel.

COVID-19 emergency border measures ended on October 1, 2022. Travellers are no longer required to be vaccinated to travel to Canada, take pre-entry or after-arrival COVID-19 tests, quarantine, use the ArriveCan app, or wear a mask on planes and trains.

Travel restrictions, testing, and quarantine requirements may be announced without notice. Be sure to check the latest updates .

To travel to Canada for studies, you must have two types of documents:

  • Valid documents to study in Canada, and
  • Valid documents to travel to Canada

1. Have valid documents to study in Canada

First, you must fall into one of the following categories:

  • Have an original, valid study permit
  • Have a valid Letter of Introduction (study permit approval letter)
  • You will study in a short-term program for less than 6 months as a visitor and can study without a study permit
  • You are a US citizen or US permanent resident, or a resident of Greenland or St. Pierre and Miquelon, and will apply for a study permit on arrival in Canada

If you will study in Canada for more than 6 months,  do not travel to Canada until you have received your Letter of Introduction, even if you have an eTA or TRV.

2. Have valid documents to travel to Canada

Second, you must fall into one of the following categories:

  • Have a valid Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) (a sticker in your passport)
  • Have a valid Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)
  • Are a US citizen or lawful US permanent resident who holds valid status in the US (you do not require a TRV or an eTA).

Find entry requirements by country or territory .

There is no specific earliest date you can travel; however, an officer may have concerns if you are travelling several months before you begin your studies. Arriving up to four weeks before you begin your studies would be considered reasonable. You cannot work in Canada until you have begun full-time studies and meet the requirements .

If you must travel earlier, prepare a detailed explanation and supporting documents, if possible, in case the airline or border officer asks. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officer you meet at the airport/border crossing will make the final decision on whether or not to admit you to Canada.

If you take a gap in studies and are not currently enrolled, you should avoid travelling to Canada more than a month before you resume your studies. Contact International Student Advising for support.

Do not travel or purchase non-refundable flight tickets or make non-refundable accommodation deposits until you have received the right documents to travel to Canada (see above).

Back to top

Be aware of local rules if you are transiting airports en route to Canada. See the International Air Transport Association (IATA) page for guidance on international visa and passport requirements, and COVID-19 measures.

You will need to get your study permit at your first arrival airport in Canada. For example, if you arrive in Toronto and then take another flight to Vancouver, you must get your study permit in Toronto. Consider booking flights that have a long layover to allow time for immigration.

Getting to UBC or your final destination

UBC does not offer airport pick-up services. You can plan your trip via public transit by using Translink’s trip planner or Google Maps .

The largest border crossing near UBC is the Douglas (Peace Arch) border crossing , which has onsite COVID-19 testing.

Learn about the  process to travel to Canada by land  and see the  driving to Canada checklist .

Also, see considerations when  temporarily importing a vehicle .

If you have unusual circumstances, to receive advice on documents to travel or the timing of travelling, you may email or call the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). If you are calling, please ask for and take note of the agent’s badge number, the date and time you speak with the agent, and record notes of your conversation in case you need to refer to this in the future. Please note the CBSA officer you meet with when you arrive in Canada will make the final decision on whether you can enter Canada.

You may also consider contacting your airline to confirm what documentation they will request to board your flight.

This information is accurate as of October 7, 2022, and is subject to change. Follow the latest updates on travel restrictions due to COVID-19 and the IRCC international students COVID-19 page . See also CBSA’s updates on travel for non-Canadians.

How to Study Abroad in Canada

  • Before You Go

From wildlife field trips to French immersion courses, Canadian educational institutions provide many opportunities. The country is also home to world-class universities, beautiful nature, and multicultural cities—an international student’s dream! So where do you start researching how to study abroad in Canada?

First of all, you will need to decide on the type of experience you want to have . Big cities, field trips in nature, or diverse wildlife— Canada has it all , just not all in the same place. Here’s everything you need to know.

Does Canada have student visa requirements?

water near trees and mountain under purple sky

From bustling cities to escapes into nature, there’s something for everyone in Canada.

Canada student visa requirements depend on how long you want to study in Canada and what nationality you have. As a ground rule, you need to apply for a study permit if you’re a foreign national who wants to study in Canada for more than six months.

Once your study permit gets approved, you will obtain your Canadian visa, known as Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). That said, the application process is different if you’re already in Canada or if you’re going for fewer than six months. You can find out what to do by filling out a short questionnaire .

What are the requirements and documents for a student visa in Canada?

To get a study permit in Canada, you need the following documents :

  • Proof of acceptance: You need a letter of acceptance from a Canadian DLI (which stands for designated learning institution).
  • Proof of identity: This can be a valid passport or a travel document.
  • Proof of financial support: You’ll need to show proof that you can support yourself while studying in Canada.
  • Letter of explanation: This covers why you want to study in Canada.
  • Quebec Acceptance Certificate: This one is only for students who want to study in Quebec!
  • Medical exam: Depending on how long you’re studying in Canada and where you’ve traveled previously, you may need a medical exam.

5 other requirements to study abroad in Canada

smiling person sitting on windowsill using laptop

Do you meet all the requirements? Then it’s time to study abroad in Canada!

In addition to the study permit, here are five other requirements to study abroad in Canada:

  • Letter of introduction: Once you get your study permit, the Canadian government will issue you a letter of introduction. You need to bring this document with you as some border services officers might want to see it upon your arrival at a Canadian airport.
  • GPA: GPA requirements vary from program to program but for most of them, a GPA of 3.0 will be more than enough.
  • Passport: Your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay in Canada.
  • Language: Canada has two official languages, English and French. If you’re studying at an English-speaking institution, English would be sufficient. However, in a French-speaking institution, especially in Quebec, you will need to speak French .
  • Age: Some study abroad programs are for high school students , while others are for college students .

How to study abroad in Canada

1. decide when and where to go..

Most big cities in Canada, including Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, have great universities with excellent academic standards. This can make it difficult to choose where to go .

In this case, consider your future goals and how a city will help you achieve them. For example, if you’re currently learning French , going to Quebec City or Montreal would give you many opportunities to practice your language skills .

If you’re going to Canada for one semester only, you will need to decide when . You have three options: fall (September to December), winter/spring (January to April), and summer when there are summer courses going on (May to July).

2. Choose a program.

There is a wide range of Canadian study abroad programs, from university exchanges to field trips in nature. While choosing programs , you have two options:

  • Option 1: Inquire at your university to do a student exchange in Canada.
  • Option 2: Choose a Canada study abroad program from an independent program provider.

3. Make sure you meet the requirements.

Some programs might have technical requirements. For example, university courses might have prerequisites. Or language courses might require you to have a certain level in the target language.

Once you’re sure you fit the requirements, apply as soon as possible. But don’t rush! Give yourself time to gather all the necessary documents, write a great personal essay , and look for scholarships if needed.

5. Plan your budget.

All that budgeting you do will be so worth it.

Canada isn’t the cheapest study abroad destination . Research the average cost of living for the state that you’re going to and plan your finances accordingly. You might also be eligible for financial aid or scholarships —worth checking!

6. Prepare a pre-departure checklist.

Make sure you complete everything you need to do before jetting off to Canada by creating a checklist . Note what paperwork you need to get done if you have student visa requirements in Canada, where to find accommodation , what to pack for the duration of your stay , and any important dates related to your program. This way, you’ll stay on top of all your tasks.

7. Book your flight!

Check your university or program provider’s website to see what dates they recommend for arrivals. They might also be able to give you tips on how to book cheap flights . You’re on your way!

How much does it cost to study abroad in canada.

First things first: Canada is a huge country— the second largest one in the world , to be exact. As you can imagine, the cost of living highly depends on which state you’re in. Statistics show that Victoria, Vancouver, and Calgary are the most expensive cities, whereas Kitchener, Windsor, and Brampton are among the cheapest ones.

Here are some examples of what your major expenses will be as an international student so you can better calculate how much it costs to study abroad in Canada:

  • Price of the study abroad program: On average, program providers charge around $2,000 per week, including tuition, training, accommodation, meals, and activities. If you’re doing an exchange at a Canadian university, you won’t need to pay tuition as your home university will be sending you as a part of an exchange program.
  • Plane tickets to and from Canada: Depending on where you are, factor the plane tickets into your budget, as they are often not covered in the program.
  • Visa application fees: The study permit application fee is 150 Canadian dollars, in case you need one.
  • Accommodation: If you’re going to Canada as an exchange student instead of a study abroad program participant, you will likely need to find your own accommodation . According to 2023 statistics , the average one-bedroom apartment costs CA$1,719.26. Some cheaper options are homestays , renting a room, or student residences.
  • Travel and activities: When in Canada, you’ll want to see more of the country, go on hikes, or get a taste of adventure travel .

3 study abroad programs in Canada to consider

Now that we’ve covered how to apply to study abroad in Canada, it’s time for some study abroad inspiration! Here are three different programs that show how diverse your options are in Canada:

The ultimate guide: What to pack for Canada as an int’l student

what to pack for Canada

Are you heading to Canada soon for university? The thought, “What to pack for Canada?” has probably crossed your mind. As a country rich in cultural diversity , it has become a famous study abroad destination, and the numbers speak for themselves (as of Dec. 31, 2021, Canada hosted nearly 622,000 international students!).

If this is your first time travelling abroad to a foreign country with four distinct seasons, it can be daunting to come up with a packing list. After all, certain provinces have different climates: from very cold winters to hot, humid summers.

Rachel Dancel , a video creator based in Vancouver who creates content to assist international students wishing to study in Canada, shared in her  Youtube video  a list of things you should pack when travelling to study abroad in Canada. 

We draw on her advice, as well as a few of our own, on some of the essential things that you should pack for Canada as an international student for each season:

What to pack for Canada

Pumpkin latte, orang foliage, corn maze, and Halloween. These are classic signs that autumn is coming. It also marks the return of the rainy season if you’re based in British Columbia.

Hence, you should pack a raincoat, an umbrella, play jackets (comfortable or informal clothing worn for leisure activities or play), scarfs, coats and waterproof shoes.

Some parts of Canada have harsher winters, so we recommend you dress for the climate. Vancouver, for instance, is considered the warmest place in Canada in winter. To keep yourself warm, consider layering. 

Socks, toques, gloves, scarfs and a neck warmer can make a significant difference in keeping you warm, so we advise you to not skim on these items.

Some universities offer winter coat drives . Under this initiative, students, and in some instances, the public, can donate clean winter wear that’s in good condition for international students to borrow. These items are typically returned once students no longer need them.

Light and breezy clothes such as shorts, tank tops, light-coloured shirts, and leggings are highly recommended to beat the summer heat. 

A cap or a bucket hat is also essential to protect your skin from the sun, while a pair of sunglasses will shield you from the glaring sun rays. Consider investing in a good pair of shoes if you want to explore Canada’s   scenic natural attractions too.

Spring has a cooler climate in Canada, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor adventures thoroughly.

Hoodies, vests, fleece jackets, and denim are perfect for the weather in spring. Dancel’s advice on layering your clothes remains the same for spring. Dressing in layers will also help you to put on more or fewer clothes in the appropriate weather.

Work clothes

Aside from dressing for the weather, you should pack a few work clothes to wear for any formal occasions such as events at your universities, a competition which requires you to dress formally, or if the occasion requires you to dress the part.

If money is an issue, check if your university has a clothing closet that provides students with donated professional business attire and, in some instances, accessories, for free, which you can use for interviews, career fairs and more.

Essential documents

Last but not least, you must have all the essential documents you need to bring with you when you’re studying in Canada secured in a folder. Here are a few important documents or items that you should not miss out on: 

  • Birth certificate
  • IELTS test score
  • Letter of acceptance
  • Tuition receipt
  • Police clearance
  • Driver’s license 
  • Medical records
  • Study permit
  • Proof of vaccination 

Do have a few backup copies in case you lose your original document.

What are the conditions of my Canadian study permit?

travel and study in canada

Annually, Canada welcomes thousands of international students, who arrive in the country through issued study visas and permits; with specific conditions that they must uphold during their studies.

What follows below will summarize these study permit conditions. Note that the specific conditions relevant to each student's case can be found on the permit document issued to them by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Discover your options to study in Canada

Generally, there are many conditions that may be included on a study permit, ranging from work authorization to travel capabilities and start/end dates for the permit. General examples of these conditions include:

  • Being enrolled at a Canadian Designated Learning Institution (DLI) - exemptions apply, see below
  • Displaying active pursuit of one’s studies - exemptions apply, see below
  • Informing the Canadian government any time a student changes their post-secondary school
  • Ending one’s studies if they no longer meet the requirements of being a student
  • Leaving Canada when your permit expires
  • The student’s specific level of study
  • Whether the student is allowed to work on or off campus
  • Whether the student needs to report for medical procedures
  • Whether the student can travel within Canada
  • The date by which the student must stop studying

Most international students pursuing a Canadian education want to make money simultaneously. If allowed by the conditions of their work permit, students can either work on or off campus without a separate work permit.

Note: In either case, students can only begin working we they start their studies, not before

Temporarily, until December 31 this year, certain international students can work more than the usual 20 hours per week (more details here ).

To work on campus , international students must be full-time (more details here ), have a valid study permit and possess a Social Insurance Number (SIN).

In any of the following cases, international students must stop working on campus:

  • On the day the student stops studying full-time (except when in their final semester, assuming they meet the other requirements)
  • When their study permit expires
  • If they are on authorized leave from their studies
  • If the student is switching schools and they are not currently studying

To work off campus , international students must be full-time (more details here ) at a DLI, be enrolled in a post-secondary academic, vocational or professional training program (or a secondary-level vocational training program if in Quebec)*, have a valid study permit and possess a Social Insurance Number (SIN).

*International students must be enrolled in a program that leads to a degree, diploma or certificate and is at least six months long

In any of the following cases, international students must stop working off campus if:

  • Their study permit says they aren’t authorized to work off-campus while they study
  • They are only enrolled in an English or French as a second language (ESL/FSL) program
  • They are only taking general interest courses
  • The student is only taking courses required to be accepted into a full-time program
  • The student’s situation changes, and they no longer meet all of the requirements to work off-campus

Many Canadian international students express a desire to travel outside of Canada while they study in this country, either abroad for a vacation or back to their country of origin to visit family and friends.

Canada allows foreign students to travel freely outside of Canada during their study permit’s validity period, but it is important for international students to remember the following about travelling outside of Canada (and then re-entering).

Re-entering Canada with a valid study permit

In addition to having a valid study permit and/or approval for a study permit or study permit extension, international students looking to re-enter Canada after travelling must:

  • Have a valid passport or travel document, such as a visitor (temporary resident) visa or Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)
  • Be attending a Canadian DLI
  • Meet all other re-entry requirements for Canada

A study permit is not itself a travel document

To travel to and from Canada, international students may need to obtain either a visitor (temporary resident) visa* or an eTA. In other cases, students may be able to travel using just their passport, but this depends on which countries require an eTA or visitor visa .

Note: Possession of an eTA or visitor visa does not guarantee re-entry into Canada and travellers must prove to border services that they meet all re-entry requirements before being allowed back into the country.

An exception to the above note for visitor visa holders (not eTA holders) is that visa holders with an invalid document will still be let back into Canada if they only travel to the United States, St-Pierre or Miquelon and their study permit is still valid.

*Students must ensure that their visitor visa is/will be valid when returning to Canada and are responsible for extending it prior to their departure if it is set to expire during their travels.

Students with a pending study permit extension will not be able to enter Canada until their extension is approved.

Consequences for not meeting study permit conditions

Failure to meet study permit conditions may mean the student will:

  • Lose their student status and study permit
  • Be asked to leave Canada
  • Be required to wait six months to apply for a new Canadian study permit, visitor visa or work permit

Note: Future immigration application results/decisions can be impacted by not following study permit conditions and/or working or studying in an unauthorized manner

Who is exempt from study permit conditions?

Certain study permit holders are exempt from having to prove that they are enrolled at a Canadian DLI or that they are actively pursuing their studies.

Among the individuals exempt from this condition are:

  • People with refugee status in Canada
  • People who are the spouse or dependent child of a Canadian study or work permit holder
  • People who are studying in Canada under an exchange agreement between Canada and another country

A full list of individuals who qualify for exemption from this study permit condition can be found here .

Note: International students exempt from the above condition must still meet all other study permit conditions to maintain their status in Canada

Canada to reduce the number of international study permits by 35 per cent: Miller

Canada will reduce the number of new international student permits by 35 per cent next year as part of a temporary two-year cap on foreign enrolment, Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced Monday morning.

The cap is expected to result in 364,000 new approved permits in 2024. The 2025 limit on new applications will be reassessed at the end of this year.

He said the move would allow them to address institutions and “bad actors” who are charging exorbitantly high tuition fees for international students, all while increasing the number of international students they are accepting.

Miller also vowed the measure would “maintain a sustainable level of temporary residence in Canada."

  • Capital Dispatch: Sign up for the latest in federal politics and why it matters

He added that they would be allocating cap space by province based on population, meaning some provinces will see a sharper reduction in the number of international students permitted.

While the reduction is 35 per cent overall in new study visas, some provinces such as Ontario could see reductions greater than 50 per cent. The cap will remain in place for two years.

Miller specified that provinces will be in charge of determining the distribution of the cap between schools in their region, and that the federal government would be working with provinces to refine the policy.

He said that he has already had “productive” conversations with British Columbia and Ontario, though he later noted that provinces, in general, have not moved as quickly in tackling this issue as the federal government would have liked.

Students applying to graduate level programs such as masters and PhD programs will be exempt from the cap.

“Those are the bright people we need to retain,” Miller said. Students at the elementary and secondary school level will also be exempt.

  • WATCH: Full announcement from Immigration Minister Marc Miller

The federal government has faced pressure from provinces regarding the increasing numbers of non-permanent residents entering Canada while the country struggles with a housing crisis.

More than 800,000 international students were issued temporary study visas in 2022. Miller said last fall that 2023's numbers were on track to be more than triple the number accepted 10 years ago.

Study permits are granted on a three year basis. Miller clarified that the cap will not apply to anyone already studying in Canada who is seeking to complete or extend their schooling.

Miller stressed in his comments Monday that this cap is not intended to punish international students, but to ensure their experience and education is up to snuff.

“International students are a valuable asset to this country,” he said. “They are bright, young individuals that enrich our communities and bring significant social, cultural and economic benefits. They deserve the best. They deserve (the) world-class academic experiences that they sought out and hoped for. And Canada is renowned for that.”

“Sadly, this has not always been the case,” he added.

Miller said it is “unacceptable that some private institutions” have “taken advantage” of international students, claiming schools have jacked up tuition prices while, in some cases, offering poorer-quality education.

“Those institutions need to be shut down,” he said.

He added that post-secondary institutions have been “underfunded by our provinces” in many regions, potentially incentivizing institutions to charge higher tuition fees for international students since they have less leeway to increase tuition for domestic students.

Questions remain

Until we know more about how provinces will be rolling out the temporary cap, it’s hard to say how specific universities will be affected, according to a statement from Universities Canada.

The organization aims to provide a unified voice for university presidents across the country. It told CTVNews.ca in an email that they are “concerned that the cap per province is going to add stress on an already stressed system.”

The statement took issue with the new requirement for applicants to provide provincial attestation with their study permit application—which Miller said Monday would be “effective immediately.”

“We anticipate the need for letters of attestation from each province could significantly affect processing times which could lead to students choosing to pursue post-secondary study in other countries,” Universities Canada said in their statement.

Miller also announced Monday that post-graduate work permits will no longer be available to the public-private institution models as of Sept. 1, 2024.

It's a change that is being criticized by Migrant Workers Alliance for Change, which said in a statement Monday that “this does not fix the failures of the massive expansion of such get-rich institutions to which recruiters will continue to funnel vulnerable students.”

It suggested that there instead be “a single system in which schools that are eligible for study permits should also be eligible for post-graduate work permits.”

The National Association of Career Colleges, which represents privately-regulated career colleges (RCCs), accused policymakers of “scapegoating RCCs,” in a statement.

While it “supports the federal government’s efforts to bring stability to our international student system,” it is calling for the release of “more complete data” to create collaborative solutions, it said.

Colleges & Institutes Canada (CICan), a national association that aids the country's publicly supported post-secondary education, also noted that the cap will have "far-reaching consequences across the sector," which will "affect both Canadian and international student," it said in a statement .

Canada's reputation as a destination for international students seeking post-secondary education may be at risk with such measures, CICan said.

"It is, therefore, imperative that these changes be implemented with care, and in collaboration with provinces, their post-secondary institutions and their associations to avoid significant system disruption and negatively affecting – over the long-term – international students’ perceptions of Canada," CICan added.  

Miller also announced changes to work permits provided to international students’ spouses.

In the coming weeks, Miller promised to reveal more details regarding open work permits, which “will only be allowed and be available to spouses of international students enrolled in masters and doctoral programs, as well as professional programs such as medicine and law.”

“Spouses of international students enrolled in other levels of study,” he said. “Including undergraduate and college programs, will no longer be eligible.”

That was grounds for pause according to the Migrant Workers Alliance for Change. In a statement, it called that shift “cruel.”

“Migrants are facing a roller-coaster of policy changes, with new announcements almost every day -- we need predictability and transparency,” it said.

Lawmakers have floated the idea of a cap on permits for international students for months. Miller has previously noted that a cap would not be a “one-size-fits-all solution” to housing shortages, as inflation, a lack of public housing and barriers to new construction are all factors impacting the shortage.

Immigration is also a key driver of Canada’s economy, accounting for almost 100 per cent of Canada’s labour force growth in recent years, according to the federal government.

What is Canada's international student program and why is it being capped?

Parliament Hill

Canada is capping the number of study permits it approves over the next two years to get a handle on a ballooning international student program.

Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced new limits to the program on Monday, including a temporary cap that will reduce the number of new student visas by 35 per cent this year.

Here's what you need to know about the program and the changes that are coming.

What is the international students program?

Foreign nationals who want to study at a Canadian institution usually need to get a study permit from the federal government. To apply, prospective students must submit a letter of acceptance, personal documentation and proof of financial support.

Until now, there have not been any limits on the number of students who can enter the country. The government mostly approved visa requests as long as the student could show they were accepted at an accredited school.

Provinces and territories are responsible for choosing which institutions are eligible to enrol international students.

How many international students are there in Canada?

The federal government expected the number of people in Canada on a student visa to hit 900,000 in 2023, Miller said last fall.

There were more than 807,000 permit-holders in the country in 2022, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. That's nearly a 31 per cent increase over 2021.

More than half of those students were in Ontario in 2022.

How much do international students pay?

International students pay considerably higher tuition fees than Canadian students, and the gap between the two groups has widened in recent years.

For the 2022-23 academic year, Statistics Canada reported that international undergraduate students paid an average of $36,123. That's 429 per cent more than tuition fees for domestic students.

Why is the program being capped?

The international student program has come under significant scrutiny in recent months as experts warn that strong population growth is putting pressure on an already-strained housing market.

The Liberal government has been under fire because a sharp rise in temporary residents — which include international students — is happening at a time when housing supply is failing to keep up with demand.

Policy experts and elected officials have also raised concerns that post-secondary institutions are relying on international student admissions to supplement their funding because their tuitions are so much higher.

Miller has even accused some institutions running the diploma equivalent of "puppy mills" rather than offering their students a quality education.

Ontario colleges have stood out in particular for large increases in international student enrolments.

According to Statistics Canada, the number of international college students increased by 154 per cent between 2014-15 and 2019-20. In comparison, the number of international university students increased by about 40 per cent over that same period.

What is changing about the program?

The number of new visas handed out this year will be capped at 364,000, a 35 per cent decrease from the nearly 560,000 issued last year. The number for 2025 will be set after an assessment of the situation later this year, Miller said.

The cap will apply only to post-secondary undergraduate students, not those seeking visas for master's programs, doctoral degrees or elementary and high school students.

The government will also bar students in schools that follow a private-public model from accessing postgraduate work permits as of Sept. 1.

In a few weeks, open work permits will only be available for the spouses of students enrolled in masters and doctoral programs, as well as professional programs such as medicine and law.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 22, 2024.

Why Canada has put curbs on foreign students, and how Indians are impacted

Marc Miller, the Canadian Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, announced on Monday that for the academic session beginning September 1, 2024, the number of new international student permits would be cut by 35% from the 2023 number.

travel and study in canada

Canada’s federal government has said it is capping the number of international student visas for a period of two years beginning with the coming academic session. Fewer visas will mean fewer Indian students will be able to travel to Canada for a college degree.

By how much is Canada cutting the number of international student visas?

travel and study in canada

“This is expected to result in approximately 360,000 approved study permits this year, and will be allocated to provinces and territories to distribute among their DLIs” (Designated Learning Institutions), Miller said in a thread posted on his official X (Twitter) handle.

“Provinces must issue letters of attestation for the students they accept, and as such, the current intake of study permit applications will be paused until March 31st as provinces implement their systems,” he posted.

The situation will be assessed at the end of this year to decide on the number of study permits for 2025. The cap on permits is not permanent, Miller said.

Festive offer

Miller, who spoke at a three-day retreat in Montreal for Ministers of the ruling Liberal Party ahead of an upcoming sitting of Parliament, also announced changes to the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWP), which allows international students to work in Canada after they have completed their studies.

“Starting in September (2024), we will no longer issue PGWPs to students studying under curriculum licensing arrangements” (that is, public-private institution models), Miller said.

Also, “in the coming weeks, we will no longer issue work permits to spouses of international students, apart from those in masters and doctoral programs. We will work towards exempting those pursuing professional programs, such as medicine and law.”

Why has Canada taken these steps to curb the influx of international students?

Canadian media quoted Miller as saying the intake of international students needed to be capped so that “a sustainable level of temporary residence” in Canada could be maintained. Canada has an obligation to ensure international students “have access to the resources they need to succeed” in the country, the Minister said on X.

Last month, the Canadian government said that from 2024, international students would have to show that they have more than $20,000 — double the existing funds requirement — in addition to tuition fees to be eligible for a study permit.

Sean Fraser, who had been Immigration Minister earlier, told Canadian media that student intake had grown “beyond what certain communities could handle” — which was the reason for the decisions announced by Miller.

Also, “unscrupulous actors” had been “taking advantage of international students, rendering them vulnerable to abuse and exploitation”, Miller said on X. The new measures would “ensure system integrity and sustainable growth”, he said.

On the decision to exclude public-private institutions from the PGWP program, the Minister said “these programs are notorious for lacking oversight and do not provide the quality academic experience that Canada is renowned for.”

Mandeep, convener of the Montreal Youth Students Organisation told The Indian Express : “There is a housing crisis in Canada currently. Rentals and the cost of living have increased a lot, while jobs are not that abundant. Also, some students have complained that private institutions were charging high tuition fees and offering poor quality education.”

Who specifically will be impacted by the decisions? Will there be implications for Indians?

The two-year cap on student permits is only for undergraduate courses. Masters and PhD programs, as well as elementary and secondary school-level courses are exempt.

The curbs will apply to only new applicants — international students who are already studying in Canada, whether in undergraduate or any other courses, are not impacted.

The visa cap will hit Indian students. According to data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the largest numbers of student visas are given to applicants from Asia, and India is on top of the list (followed by China).

Canada is a favourite destination for students from Punjab. Often, students are joined by their spouses on spouse visas within months of their beginning studies or getting a temporary job. Under the new rules, open work permits will be given to spouses only if they are enrolled in a postgraduate or doctoral program.

According to IRCC data, the population of international students rose from around 3.26 lakh in 2014 to more than 8 lakh in 2022. Last week, The Globe and Mail reported that at the end of December 2023, the number of study permit holders had crossed a million — 1,028,850, according to IRCC data quoted in the report — with more than half of them living in Ontario. The number of work permit holders was estimated at 1.4 million.

Study permit conditions

On this page, if your school loses its dli status, what counts as an authorized leave from your studies, what happens if you don’t meet your study permit conditions, people who are exempt from study permit conditions, your study permit conditions, changes to off-campus work hours.

You may be eligible to work more than 20 hours per week off campus under a temporary public policy. Find out if you meet the requirements .

As a study permit holder, you need to meet a number of conditions. If you don’t meet these conditions, you may lose your student status and study permit. You may also have to leave Canada.

As a study permit holder, you must:

  • be enrolled at a designated learning institution (DLI), unless you’re exempt
  • being enrolled full-time or part-time during each academic semester (excluding regularly scheduled breaks)
  • making progress towards completing your program’s courses, and
  • not taking authorized leaves longer than 150 days from your study program
  • tell us any time you change post-secondary schools
  • end your studies if you no longer meet the requirements of being a student, and
  • leave Canada when your permit expires

Other study permit conditions you may need to follow

You may have other conditions listed on your study permit. You must follow these conditions, which could include

  • the level of studies
  • if you’re allowed to work on or off campus as a student in Canada
  • if you need to report for medical procedures
  • if you’re allowed to travel within Canada, and
  • the date you must stop studying.

If your school loses its DLI status after you get your study permit, you can keep studying at that school until your permit expires.

If you want to extend your study permit, you’ll need to enrol at a school with DLI status.

If you’ve deferred your enrolment

If you’ve deferred your enrolment and the DLI that issued your letter of acceptance is de-designated before you start studying, you cannot start studying at that school.

  • apply to and be accepted at a new DLI
  • update the information about your learning institution in MyAccount
  • we’ll send you a request to provide a new letter of acceptance from a new DLI
  • you’ll need to update the information about your learning institution in MyAccount (if your study permit is approved)

There are a few cases where you may be able to take a leave of up to a maximum of 150 days from your program of studies and still be considered to be actively pursuing your studies.

You don’t need to tell us if you’re taking an authorized leave. However, if we ask for it, you must provide proof that your leave is

  • authorized by your DLI and
  • no longer than 150 days

It counts as authorized leave if

  • medical reasons or pregnancy
  • family emergency
  • death or serious illness of a family member
  • any other type of leave your school authorizes
  • your school has closed permanently or because of a strike
  • you’ve changed schools
  • In this case, you must start your studies the next semester, even if it starts sooner than 150 days, and get an updated letter of acceptance.

You can’t work on or off campus during an authorized leave from your study program, even if your study permit says you’re allowed to work in Canada.

How to prove that you meet your conditions

We might ask you to prove you’re meeting your conditions:

  • as part of a random check
  • if we have reason to believe you’re not meeting them

We might ask you for:

  • your enrolment status
  • the reason for and start date of any leave you’ve taken
  • the date you withdrew from a school or study program
  • the date you were suspended or dismissed from a school or study program
  • the date you stopped studying at the school
  • official transcripts
  • references from people who know you
  • proof from a medical professional confirming the medical need for a leave from your study program
  • document confirming your school has closed and no longer offers your study program
  • any other document an officer finds relevant

If your classes were suspended or moved online because of COVID-19

To prove you didn’t violate your study permit conditions, you can get a letter from your DLI stating that you

  • stayed enrolled in your DLI, and
  • participated in your studies online, if your DLI offered them

If we find you haven’t met your study permit conditions, we may ask you to leave Canada. You might also have to wait 6 months before you can apply for a new study permit (or for a visitor visa or work permit in Canada).

The outcome of any future applications you submit could be impacted if you do either of the following:

  • you don’t follow your study permit conditions
  • you work or study in a way we haven’t authorized

If you meet all of your study permit conditions , you get to keep your study permit and status as a student. However, some study permit holders are exempt from certain conditions.

  • you or a family member (spouse or dependent child) has made a refugee claim in Canada that hasn’t yet been decided on
  • you have refugee status in Canada
  • you or a family member (spouse or dependent child) are a Convention refugee or a humanitarian-protected person
