Join Cynthia Leach, Senior Director, Economic Thought Leadership, RBC for an engaging discussion of Course Correction: How international students can help solve Canada's labour crisis.

Overview:
Thousands of foreign students pass through the gates of Canadian universities and colleges every year, armed with skills essential to succeed in the new economy. The unsubsidized tuition fees they pay are now a lucrative revenue source for our post-secondary institutions and helped burnish Canada’s reputation as a global place of learning.

International students are also considered ideal candidates for permanent residency to replace an aging workforce. Canada’s immigration system has been alive to the issue, prioritizing economic class permanent residents (i.e., new immigrants) with skills needed in the labour market. International students are now a key talent pipeline, representing almost 40% of new economic-class immigrants.
