The Federal Government may consider placing a limit on the number of study permits

The Federal Government of Canada may reconsider capping the number of international students to enter the country, as it has caused "explosive growth" in rental markets and costs.

Housing and Infrastructure Minister Sean Fraser said that the study permit program is a temporary resident program, unlike permanent resident immigration programs, and is driven by demand.

This program's growth is happening in concentrated regions of Canada, putting significant pressure on the job market and even more so on the housing market.

Fraser suggests that the Federal Government should consider capping the number of international students allowed to enter Canada annually.
