Canada is becoming the first choice as a study destination for international students around the world. This can be because of Canada’s ambitious International Education Strategy which is their blue print to attract talent, and prepare the country for the 21st century. Canada has intensified their drive to be a world leading study destination and aims to double the number of international students by 2022. Canada also positions international students as a source of skilled labor and the Canadian government’s policy change in 2016 has made it easier to apply for PR, receive points for academic credentials earned in Canada and the government legislation has eased citizenship requirements for international students making Canada one of the most attractive study destinations in the world.
