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.
