Canada approved 56,000 study permits in the first stage

Canadian immigration minister Marco Mendicino said during a recent webinar on September 22, 2020, 56,000 people have received their first-stage approvals for study permits. The federal government is working to ensure each designated learning institution (DLI) has met the public health requirements of the province and territory in which they are located. Mendicino said international students enrich our culture and communities and contribute $22 billion to Canada’s economy.
