The labor shortage in Canada requires more talent and international graduates are the best source to fill the vacant positions in the job market. They highly contribute to the economic growth of the country.
Between March 2009 and March 2019, 1,794,500 new employment positions for university graduates were generated, more than twice as many as for graduates of all other levels of postsecondary education combined.
In 2019, there were around 1,090,000 full-time and 266,000 part-time students.
There are many scholarship opportunities offered by the Canadian government and universities for students. One of the government-funded scholarships is the Queen Elisabeth Scholarship which involved 46 DLI-listed universities in Canada and raised $87 million.
Universities distribute a certain amount of money to fund prospective and talented students. For instance, McGill University Scholarships Office offered over $7 million in one year, and UBC honors outstanding students from around the world with more than $30 million in awards, scholarships, and other forms of financial support for international undergraduate students each year. Moreover, the University of Toronto awards thousands of students more than $106 million in scholarships.
