Canada continued to see a surge in immigration, playing a crucial role in meeting the country’s demographic and workforce needs. It gave permanent residency to over 62,000 international students last year, an increase of almost 10,000 over 2022.

A significant portion of the newcomers who obtained permanent residency in 2023 were former international students who came to Canada on study visa. These students, after completing their programmes, had the chance to qualify for Canadian permanent residence (PR).
