Immigration minister worries the housing crisis may unfairly affect immigrants and international students

The Immigration Minister, Marc Miller, and student advocates express concern that the current housing crisis may cause an unjustified backlash against immigrants and international students.

With the number of international students expected to reach 900,000 this year, a significant increase from just under 240,000 in 2011, Housing Minister Sean Fraser suggested a cap on the number of international students Canada accepts.

However, advocates believe that such a proposal could unfairly target already vulnerable communities.

Additionally, Miller emphasized that international students contribute significantly to the economy, amounting to $20 to $30 billion yearly through tuition and other fees.
