Canadian policy makes it easier for international students to immigrate

In 2012, 20,000 foreigners have attained permanent Canadian resident status under an ambitious national program launched four years ago: the Canadian Experience Class . This program is the centerpiece of Canada’s international education strategy; it is a formal policy initiative aimed to not only attract talented foreign students and workers to Canada – but to keep them there to enrich the increasingly knowledge-driven Canadian economy. The Canadian Experience Class helps qualified foreign students and workers in Canada to speed up the process of moving from temporary to permanent residence in Canada, based on their skills and comfort within Canadian society.

Under the programs new guidelines, foreign workers already working there now have to show that they have only one year of Canadian work experience (instead of the two previously required) to be eligible.

Part of an overall strategy

This promising picture of international graduate immigration follows hot on the heels of Canada’s newly announced (and first-ever)  national strategy for international education. According to this strategy, Canada wants to “become the 21st century leader in international education in order to attract top talent and prepare our citizens for the global marketplace, thereby providing key building blocks for our future prosperity.”

The strategy is laudable in its efforts to integrate the potential fruits of international education (i.e., bright young people with skills and education the progressively globalized and knowledge-based Canadian economy needs) into the workforce of Canada.

According to the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, the country’s new national strategy is designed to:

  1. internationalize Canada’s education and research institutions to support Canada’s science and technology (S & T) and innovation agendas
  2. provide Canadians with a global perspective and allow them to become citizens of the world who can contribute to the “diplomacy of knowledge”
  3. open doors to world markets as Canada seeks to diversify its exports by sector and region
  4. align with Canada’s overall immigration policies and address demographic and labor market issues
  5. spur economic growth, job creation, and increased exports and investment


The advisory panel for Canada’s international education strategy outlined its recommendations, which included ambitious growth targets for international students, more scholarships for international students, and an international mobility program for 50,000 Canadian students to study in foreign countries.

The panel set an overall target for growth as well in their  international education strategy: a doubling of the number of full-time international students in Canada from 239,000 in 2011 to more than 450,000 over the next decade.

A major export sector

Foreign students are now worth more than Canada’s exports in unwrought aluminum or aerospace products. The Canada Experience Class, now represents Canada’s fastest-growing immigration stream.
