    Description: The fast-growing number of international students have generated strong public interest and concerns about their impacts on Canada’s educational institutions, labour market, and affordable housing. Fully understanding such impacts requires better knowledge of their school enrollment and labour force participation. Using temporary resident permit data from the Longitudinal Immigration Database and tax data from the Longitudinal Worker File, this article sheds light on the activities and sociodemographic characteristics of postsecondary study permit holders who were not enrolled in publicly funded postsecondary education institutions.

    Description:

    The number of international students has grown considerably worldwide, primarily from developing countries to Western developed countries. In recent years, Canada has led other major Western countries in the growth of international students. The opportunity for international students to work in Canada after graduation and to potentially become permanent residents, and ultimately Canadian citizens, is considered a draw factor for prospective international students. When international students decide to stay and work in Canada after graduation, one of the main avenues to do so is through the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP). This article examines the trends in the number and share of international students participating in the PGWPP and the share of PGWP holders with employment income and their earnings levels. The transitions of PGWP holders to permanent residency are also examined.

    Description:

    While the primary reason for international students being in Canada is for study purposes, they may also participate in the labour market. Increases over the past two decades in the number of international students, alongside programs designed to facilitate their availability to work while studying, parallel a growing role played by this population in the Canadian labour market. This article assesses the extent to which international students who intended to study at the postsecondary level were engaged in the labour market.

    Description:

    The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many segments of Canadian society, including post-secondary institutions given the uncertainty surrounding the enrolment of international students. With the current international travel restrictions in place in Canada and requests by health authorities to practice physical distancing, a large majority of universities were planning to utilize online learning as the primary teaching method for the entire 2020/21 academic year. Over the last decade, institutions have increasingly relied on international students' tuition fees as a revenue source. The aim of this paper was to assess, using projection scenarios, hypothetical financial losses for Canadian universities in the 2020/21 school year. These scenarios were based on a series of assumptions using forecasted international and domestic student registrations and recent trends in administrative and survey data.
