IRCC is committed to attracting and retaining international students
Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) recently released their official response to the Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration’s (CIMM) report that outlines measures for the attraction, recruitment, and retention of international students in Canada. Earlier, CIMM sent IRCC a report entitled “Differential Treatment in Recruitment and Acceptance Rates of Foreign Students in Quebec and in the Rest of Canada” to address the disadvantageous and vulnerable situations that foreign students face in Canada. The IRCC response covers pre-existing measures and offers new suggestions to help reduce vulnerabilities, aiding international students through the application process, their studies in Canada, and settlement.
