International immigrants and students will become difficult to set in Canada for study and education due to the economic recovery that has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many Students have changed their decision from immigration to Canada to stay in their own country due to the attack of a covid pandemic. Covid Pandemic has affected travel across the world and Canada is no exception. During this time Canadian government put travel restrictions to control the increasing cases of the corona.
Long with this international students are ignored from these travel restrictions. New students are able to apply for the same and get the permissions to immigrate. Before the pandemic, Canada still aimed to have numbers of immigrants every year, and employers too. All because Canada has a population that creates labor shortages. Eventually, the pandemic amplified the demand for new talent. Most of the labor shortage is for occupations that need at least a college diploma Degree or an apprenticeship, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. The CFIB also recommends that small businesses rely on immigrants with temporary workers to succeed.
Is Canada Still Providing Study Permit Applications?
Canada is processing study permit applications for the interested ones. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has indicated many immigration applications are facing processing delays due to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. Canada has also launched a new process for study permit applicants that helps international students to start their Canadian studies in the respective universities.
Newcomers will have access to short-term programs with small credentials’ that will help them to immediately integrate into the labor market. Besides all, the corona pandemic has both advantages and disadvantages. Students who were willing and planned to study in Canadian universities had to drop it for some time but not for a lifetime.
