Increasing the number of international students transitioning to permanent residence through Express Entry would positively impact Canada’s economic needs and priorities. According to a survey, 69% of respondents agreed this would have a strong positive impact, while 20% said it would have a somewhat positive impact. Only 7% said it would have no impact, 2% said it would have a slightly negative impact, and less than 1% said it would have a strongly negative impact. The respondents who supported this idea mentioned that international student graduates are well-suited to work, integrate, and stay in Canada, thanks to their familiarity with Canada’s official languages, Canadian educational credentials, and work experience.
