Policy Brief: Principles for Higher Education and Immigration Policy

A group of graduating students tossing their motarboards in the air, as is tradition.

Canada's recent decision to limit the number of undergraduate international students has led to a lot of conversation.

It's a big change, one that could reshape our colleges and universities and ripple through our economy and workforce.

We believe it's a conversation that needs voices from across the business community. These changes are more than just policy shifts; they're about the future of our province's talent pipeline and economic health.

We've developed a policy brief that digs into these changes, laying out what they could mean for Canada – especially for Ontario – and suggesting some forward-thinking principles for policymakers. It's about striking the right balance: keeping our education system robust, supporting the financial sustainability of post-secondary institutions and continuing to attract the bright minds from around the globe who help fuel our economy.

Together, let's ensure that Ontario remains a vibrant, inclusive, and innovative place to learn, work, and do business.
