Indian Students in Canada Cross the 100,000 Mark

November 2017, 07

The cumulative total of students from India, who are attending Canadian colleges/universities, during 2016 crossed 100,000 for the first time. Going by the flow, the intake in 2017 could be a record.

The signals emanating from the present Trump administration in the US, which were not immigrant-friendly, are one of the reasons for the increase in the Indian students in Canada for seeking higher education.

As per the IRCC data, meant for study permit holders, by country of citizenship, Canada drew 31,975 Indian students in 2015. It was 52,890 in 2016, and by August 2017 it was 44,855, making it certain that the number of students will set a record by the December 2017.

The Premier institutions to benefit are the University of Toronto. Professor Ted Sargent, the Vice-President (International) stated that the real intention of the government was to reach out internationally and make Canada, a nation which is warm and welcoming, at a time, when other nations in the world, do not feel so. The University of Toronto, is located in the largest city in Canada, and is multicultural and inviting in nature. When several other nations, are not going the positive way, immigration offers a great advantage, to the country, he added.

Sargent is on a visit to India and represents an emphasis on engaging India, which is a major part of the university approach introduced in 2017. The aim is to raise interest, among Indian applicants now, and follow up with the students, in March, and help them to make their final decision.

This strategy involved in the transnational movement of students was a new trend and was being keenly observed. There is an interest, among Indian students, from Indian families, and from those based in the Middle East, and the immigration policies, adopted by the US, are influencing the seeking of an alternative, in Canada over it.

The time taken to get a green card of the US was also a factor. In Canada, most of the cases related to permanent residents, are completed within four months. Canada is in search for making the most from this opening and has been a nation, which celebrates multiculturalism. It has a record to see immigration, as a means to acquire the best talent from the world he concluded.
