Allocation and approval of study permit this year 2024

Canada Announces Study Permit Allocations and Approvals for 2024.

In 2024, the Canadian Immigration Minister, Marc Miller, plans to approve 235,600 new study permits. There’s a cap of 392,667 applications (excluding some students) with a 60% approval rate. They’re aiming for a total of 485,000 permits, including 97,000 extensions, across provinces. Canada expects about 606,000 study permit applications, with the maximum limit set for all applicants, including school students and those pursuing master’s or doctoral degrees.

Around 392,667 slots are allocated for new study permit applications, excluding primary and secondary school students as well as master’s or doctoral degree students. Initially, the cap announced in January excluded these groups, but it now applies to all types of study permit applications.

Capping model of Canada Study Permit 2024

According to the minister, the national cap on international students is set at zero growth, meaning it’s the same as the number of study permits expiring this year.

In 2024, the number of new international students coming to Canada should match the number of students whose permits expire. The goal for 2024 is to have 485,000 approved study permits. IRCC distributed 393,000 permits based on each province and territory’s population share.

In 2024, certain provinces will experience a rise in student numbers, restricted to a 10% increase from 2023, whereas others will see a decrease. To manage growth and align with regional objectives, IRCC modified allocations. Additionally, they provided assistance to provinces anticipating reduced student numbers and augmented allocations for those with low approval rates. Consequently, around 552,000 applications received assignments, aiming for approximately 292,000 accepted permits, reflecting a 28% decline from 2023 for capped groups.
