2017 Federal Advocacy Asks — International Students

2017 Federal Advocacy Asks — International Students

Our recommendation is based off two principles: international students with Canadian university-awarded degrees should have equal job prospects as their domestic counterparts; and international students’ full-time, paid experiential and work-integrated learning experiences — gained while they’re full-time students — should count towards their eligibility for Permanent Resident (PR) status.

The government should change the eligibility guidelines under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) Express Entry program to allow international students to count full-time, work-integrated learning experience as eligible work experience.
