Petition to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
The Government of Canada previously had an immigration selection system for international PhD students; and
The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has stated that taking away the 50 percent credit for international students was inadvisable “because if there is any group in this country who would be good Canadians — they’re educated, they know about this country, they speak English or French — it’s them.”
We, the undersigned, Citizens, Permanent Residents and Temporary Residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship to take measures to give priority to international graduate students in the application process for permanent residency, such as adjusting the comprehensive ranking system to award more points to international students who study inside Canada and/or allowing work experience under a study permit to count towards work experience in Canada.
