Most international students will come to Canada for September 2021 session
International students are waiting to come to Canada to attend their study programs. Nearly 90% of colleges have announced that the January session will be online. Canada does not have a high number of students starting in the May session. Therefore, it is expected that most students will come to Canada to attend the September 2021 session in person. However, students can take online classes, while staying in their home countries. Currently, the student visa success rate has gone up. However, students have a concern as they are paying high fees and still taking online classes.

Canada welcomed 128,400 immigrants in 2020
Canada welcomed 11,315 new immigrants in August this year, and 13,645 in July. The number of new immigrants welcomed in August this year was significantly less than the 31,600 immigrants it welcomed in the same period last year. Prior to the pandemic, the federal government was targeting the arrival of 341,000 new immigrants in 2020. Between January and August of 2020, Canada welcomed 128,400 immigrants. Based on current trends, it appears Canada’s permanent resident intake will fall short of 200,000 immigrants this year for the first time since 1999.

Canadian universities face up to $3.4 billion in losses due to COVID-19
According to new research by Statistics Canada, Canadian universities could be facing losses ranging between $377 million and $3.4 billion. The impact of the COVID-19 on Canadian universities was assessed by examining five possible scenarios. The two determining factors affecting the outcome were changes in international and domestic student enrolment. The losses primarily come from a decrease in the numbers of international student tuitions, which accounts for 40% of all tuition fees at Canadian universities and generated $4 million in 2017-2018. The study also highlighted the growing reliance on tuition over the past decade. Reliance on tuition has grown substantially due to foreign students,” who pay substantially higher tuition than domestic students and account for an increasing share of post-secondary students in Canada,” the report says.

How can a child born outside of Canada get citizenship?
According to IRCC, no matter where the child was born, Canadian parents can automatically pass on citizenship to their children. Traditionally, if one of the parents is Canadian when the child is born, the child can enjoy the perks as a Canadian. The same applies to a child of a Canadian who was born outside of Canada. In order for the child to be recognized for citizenship, the parents must help them apply for a certificate of citizenship. According to IRCC, the cost of applying for a Canadian citizenship certificate is about $75 and it takes about 5 months to process. The Immigration Department will accept the birth record and documents confirming the Canadian parents’ names.
