The federal government has unveiled its five-year international educational strategy
The main goal of the new $148 million-worth strategy is to increase the diversity of countries of origin of international students. Canada will focus on countries with a growing middle class, in which there is no opportunity to educate everyone and countries where the prospect of receiving an education in English or French will be attractive. Canadian authorities will focus on students from Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Morocco, Ukraine, Turkey and France. The other key goal of the strategy aims to diversify the locations of study of foreign students by attracting international students to rural and less populated areas where there are fewer immigrants. As of December 31, 2018, there were above 570,000 study permit holders in the country.
