International students in Canada struggle to meet labour market demands

Canada's international student intake does not align with labour market needs, with most focusing on business-related programs.

Only a small percentage pursue health sciences, medicine, or trade and vocational programs. This mismatch is blamed on a lack of oversight and contributes to negative economic outcomes.

Experts argue that immigration policies focus more on immigrant outcomes and long-term market needs.

The Federal Government aims to reduce the number of new study permits, considering only a specific number of study permit applications in 2024 due to concerns about the integrity of the international student system.
