Canada is capping foreign student visas to ease housing pressures as the cost of living soars

TORONTO: Canada on Monday announced a two-year cap on international student visas to ease the pressure on housing, health care and other services at a time of record immigration.
Immigration Minister Marc Miller said that there will be a 35 percent reduction in new study visas in 2024. He said that the international students program has been exploited by institutions offering “sham” degrees, putting pressure on housing and health care.
“It’s a bit of a mess, and it’s time to rein it in,” Miller said.
