Indian Students now Exceed Chinese Students at Canadian Schools Currently, there is a hike in the number of Indian students in Canadian universities, and this is greater than the Chinese students.

According to the statistics given by the Canadian High Commission to the Globe and Mail newspaper; in 2018, Canadian study permits were held by 172,000 citizens from Indian compared to the 142,000 Chinese citizens.

As reported by the same newspaper, in 2018, 85,825 new Chinese students arrived in Canada; while 107,795 students from India – a 300% increase since 2015 – arrived in Canada.

The accessibility of an open work permit after graduation is the major factor that drives the Indian students to universities in Canada. Also, citizenship and permanent residency have simplified pathways in Canada.

These Canadian policies contrast the US government’s effort to restrict foreign workers with H-1B work visas, one thing which the Indians really benefitted from.

Other reasons include diverse population, quality of education and the multicultural nature of the Canadian universities. Also, the fact that Canadian education is less expensive as compared to the US is another driving force.

Work Permit, Immigration Options for International Students

International students are termed immigration candidates due to their competency in French or English, form of education and the integration of their large numbers into the Canadian society.

Hence as a form of encouragement to remain in the country, a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) can be applied for by foreign graduates of eligible Canadian colleges and universities. This visa is valid for three years and requires no job offer.

Job opportunities at anywhere in the country are available to any foreign graduate with PGWP, even with the opportunity to change employers at will. This is as a result of the open work permit.

The Express Entry System which is the main economic immigration gateway in Canada rewards Canadian education with extra points. Also, pathways to the permanent residence are provided by provinces in Canada for eligible foreign graduates of the country’s universities.

India Demands Release of Indian Students Arrested in the USThe United States has been urged by India to release 129 students detained during a crackdown on people said to be involved in the violation of the country’s immigration rules. These students enrolled in a University in Farmington Hills, MI but the university was later revealed to be part of undercover operations by Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Last week, the news of the arrests of several hundreds of students by the DHS broke out, and it has since generated a lot of waves. After affected students contacted them, American Telugu Association (ATA) offered its help and counsel to the students as well as offering to work with the Indian ambassador to ensure proper course of action.

They Were Duped

In a rallying call to the US, India said the affected students were perhaps duped into enrolling in the fake university hence should be treated differently from the recruiters who are the perpetrators. India ministry of external affairs expressed the country’s concern over the dignity and well-being of the affected students and emphasized the need for immediate action.

The ministry, therefore, urged the US to share full details of the situation with the government of India as well as provide continuous updates. They also demand the release of the students from detention as soon as possible and should not be deported forcefully.

India ministry of external affairs reemphasized the country’s commitment towards the welfare of the students detained, and so, it’s working diligently with all stakeholders including US authorities to resolve the issue. The ministry said about 30 of the students had been contacted by officials and is doing all it can to reach others latest in 24 hours.
