New Policies to Benefit International Students in Canada

July 2016, 21
EMAIL  Print A+
Canada is one of those few countries, which is using immigration as a useful tool for development. Understanding the prominence of international students living in Canada, the Immigration Minister John McCallum announced at several stages, that new changes in the immigration system would benefit international students. 

According to McCallum, “international students in Canada are young and adapt to conditions quickly, and are good at English and French. They must be given the highest priority in granting permanent residency.” The comprehensive economic migration program, called the ‘Canada Express Entry Scheme’, gives very less scope for international students. Discussions are on, to revamp the express entry scheme in a way to facilitate International students. 

The new Liberal Government introduced significant changes to the immigration system since it assumed power in November 2015. Citizenship laws have been changed. Out of the total time spent by international students, half that time will be considered to be eligible for Canadian citizenship.

Now, it requires the physical presence of just three years in a cumulative period of five years for a foreigner to apply for a citizenship in Canada. Language is no more a barrier, it requires single language proficiency. Earlier it was mandatory to have a proficiency in either French or English.
