Canada is trying to keep as many international students as possible. One thing to note is that Canada is on track to provide PR (Permanent Residency) to a lot of students and all of these actions indicate that. All of these students are boosting Canada’s economy at a good level. Post graduate work permits are providing a lot of students 18-months of extra work permit. 

Fraser has explicitly stated that the international students will facilitate strong growth potential in the economy. Canada as a country has always been welcoming and providing a lot of opportunity to international students. According to officials Canada is on a progressive track to allow more international students to make Canada their home country. 

In order to be eligible for the PGWP extension for international students with expired or expiring permits in Canada, students must have graduated from a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) in Canada. Moreover, students graduating from their programme are permitted to work as they await a response to their PGWP application.

Previously, Quebec announced its intention of welcoming over 71,000 French-speaking permanent residents this year. However, several businesses and companies have raised concerns over the province’s plans to bring in more French-speaking residents. They highlighted that to address the highly competitive labor market of Quebec, the province should focus on immigrants from diverse backgrounds.
