More international students in Canada are becoming permanent residents

Statistics from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) show that the number of international students transitioning to permanent residency is increasing.

In 2005, 8,565 former international students became permanent residents, compared to 19,330 in the first three quarters of 2023.

Ontario remains the province, admitting the highest number of former study permit holders as permanent residents.

By 2023, Ontario welcomed 6,760 permanent residents who were international students. The rankings for other provinces have changed over time.

In 2015, Alberta, Quebec, and British Columbia ranked second, third, and fourth, respectively.

By 2023 Q3, British Columbia ranked second with 4,195, followed by Quebec (2,115) and Alberta (1,900). Although there are fluctuations in admissions, the overall trend shows a positive growth in the number of international students obtaining permanent residency in Canada.
