Montreal continues to be the best city in North America for students
Montreal is maintaining its title as the best city for students in North America, according to the most recent ranking published by QS Quacquarelly Symonds. If you take into account the global ranking, Montreal maintains a very good position, as it occupies sixth place, two spots under its 2018 ranking. Among the factors that are analyzed for creating the QS Best Student Cities ranking are the quality of the universities, size of the student population, access for international students, safety, affordability, job opportunities and a poll among university students all over the world. Among the factors that most favour Canada is the impression of its students. In fact, if this poll were the only thing taken into account, Montreal would occupy the number two spot on the list.

BC is increasing healthcare coverage fee for international students
The government of British Columbia is going to increase the healthcare cost for international students. The province has provided international students with provincial health coverage since 1992. Although Ontario and Quebec are the provinces with the largest number of international students in Canada, neither of them provides coverage for these students under their provincial healthcare plans. International students are currently paying $37.50 per month in Medical Service Plan (MSP) premiums. As of January 1, 2020, when MSP premiums will be fully eliminated in BC, the healthcare coverage fee for all foreign students will be $75 per month.

New Brunswick announces a strategy to fix nurse shortage
The government of New Brunswick plans to add 130 nurses a year during the next decade. This was announced on July 30, 2019. The new strategy will help to overcome the nursing shortage in the province. The main focus of the strategy will enable attracting and accommodating foreign nurses and at the same time will provide better education opportunities for domestic students. New Brunswick officials said the province will need 1,300 new nurses over the next 10 years, based on the number of nurses retiring and the number of students who are graduating. The province is also trying to identify countries with nursing programs similar to the provincial standards. New Brunswick has already allocated $2.3 million in the 2019-20 budget to implement some parts of the strategy.
