Canada extended immigration measures to support relatives of Canadian citizens and residents who left Sudan

On May 16, 2024,  the Government of Canada extended immigration measures to help immediate family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents who left Sudan.

These measures, valid until October 27, 2024, were implemented following the violence that broke out on April 15, 2023.

With these measures, qualifying relatives from abroad can receive a fee-exempt temporary resident permit (TRP) to ease their journey to Canada.

Upon arrival in Canada, they can apply for a fee-exempt open work or study permit and even submit a fee-exempt application for permanent residence under the family class.

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.

Ontario’s PAL allocation favours colleges over universities

Ontario's PAL allocation heavily favours colleges over universities, securing 84% of the share, leaving universities with only 16%.

Seneca College leads with 20,388 allocations, while larger institutions like the University of Toronto and York University receive significantly fewer (around 6,356 and 5,032, respectively).

Concerns arise over this approach's impact on international education trends, with experts like Earl Blaney questioning its effectiveness. In contrast, Nova Scotia's allocation is more evenly distributed among universities, colleges, and language schools.

The University of Prince Edward Island receives the majority of allocations on Prince Edward Island.
