An increase in international student numbers puts the integrity of the immigration system at risk

Immigration Minister Marc Miller is concerned about the increasing international students coming to Canada. He believes this could affect Canadians’ trust in the integrity of the immigration system, not just in terms of housing. Canada is set to welcome a historic high of 900,000 international students this year, compared to a third of that a decade ago. However, this increase has raised concerns over housing availability, with the government considering various options, including a cap on international students. While acknowledging the issue, the immigration minister believes that a hard cap is not the only solution, as the problem stems from issues with the integrity of the system and illegitimate actors taking advantage of it. Miller emphasized the need for closer collaboration with provinces and private colleges to ensure that institutions have enough space and suitable housing for those being admitted.
