Global Horizons #8 – Kicking off 2024

2024 kicks off with a bang

It’s been an eventful start of the year as the federal government announced a cap on international student study permits. While the changes do not affect Canadian students’ outbound mobility, Global Skills Opportunity shares post-secondary institutions’ concerns of the implications for Canada’s international education sector and global education brand.

We invite you to read Colleges and Institutes Canada and Universities Canada’s joint letter to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Marc Miller.

Despite this development, GSO is hopeful that renewed funding for our program will be included in the upcoming federal budget.

The GSO team continues to demonstrate the value of international study and work experiences through op-eds, Alumni spotlights and a social media campaign. See below for an overview of our activities over the past three months and a look at what’s ahead.

Happy reading!
