Canada’s standing as a favoured destination for Indian students may be at risk

At the recent Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) conference, a panel explored Canada’s standing in the Indian student market in a session titled “Recalibrating Institutional Strategies for India.” The session featured a fresh agent survey and expert insights. The survey revealed a hopeful outlook for Indian outbound to Canada despite the current diplomatic crisis. However, 61% of agents predicted a “slightly negative impact,” while 30% expected a “significant negative impact.” A decrease in Canadian diplomatic staff in India has influenced visa processing and outreach activities. The survey also indicated a student preference shift from Canada to Australia and the UK. The panel recommended enhancing communication efforts to counteract this trend. Indian students accounted for approximately 40% of Canada’s total foreign enrolment in 2022. The panel emphasized the importance of diversifying student intake, managing risk, and enhancing student support services.
