International tourism: Canada welcomes people from all over the world

With a record number of delegates, buyers and one-on-one meetings, Canada’s largest tourism event, Rendez-vous Canada (RVC), endorsed the industry in the country and made clear its commitment to increase international tourism. Bardish Chagger, Minister of Small Business and Tourism, said that Canada is open to business and tourism, and welcomes people from all over the world. Jorge Morfin, Destination Canada’s representative in Mexico, said that thanks to the elimination of the visa, there has been a significant increase in the number of Mexicans visiting Canada. He said that growth expectations for this year in the Mexican market are 36% but could reach 50% given the good performance in recent months.

Canadian post-secondary institutions may need to look for new student sources

Canadian post-secondary institutions may need to look for new student sources

As Chinese international students have brought approximately $5 billion in economic benefits to Canada a year, Canadian post-secondary colleges and universities hope that the incoming of Chinese international students to Canada will not be affected by the current Canada-China relations. The figures show that Chinese international students make up approximately one-third of the total number of international students in Canada. In preparation for “rainy days”, the colleges and universities are taking precautionary measures in opening up new student sources. Association of Universities & Colleges of Canada President Paul Davidson said in an interview with Radio Canada International (RCI) that, as of now, there is no sign that the incoming of Chinese international students to Canada will be affected for the coming academic year. Davidson said that countries such as Vietnam, Malaysia and some in Africa could be Canada’s future source countries for international students.

A research project studying employment equity in immigrant communities has been announced

The Council of Agencies Serving South Asians (CASSA) is conducting a community-based research project funded by the United Way, titled “Research on employment equity for South Asian in immigrant communities in Toronto”. This initiative is a three-year community-based research study on the employment needs, barriers, and recommendations for employment equity for South Asian immigrant communities in Toronto. The study will aim to conduct a needs assessment to identify the needs and barriers of South Asian immigrant communities in Toronto in gaining meaningful employment. Once the study has concrete ideas of the needs and barriers, the second part of the study is to develop recommendations for public policy changes as well as recommendations for business process improvements to help meet the needs and alleviate the barriers faced by South Asian communities.

The increasing number of Chinese international students in Canada

The increasing number of Chinese international students in Canada

Canadian Association of Colleges and Universities President Paul Davidson said the number of Chinese international students will remain consistent for the following academic year. Chinese international students make up one-third of the total Canadian international student population. Junior high school international students and their families bring in $5 billion in annual revenue for Canada. If the number of Chinese international students’ changes, it may severely impact the financial situation of Canadian schools. As of August 2018, there are 570,000 international students residing in Canada. This number has increased by 60% compared to 3 years ago. The majority of these students have completed their high school studies in Canada and then apply for a study visa extension to complete post-secondary education. 67% of international students end up studying in Ontario and 21% in British Columbia.

IRCC announced on Twitter that since November 2015, Canada has welcomed 58,600 refugees from Syria. 57% of recently surveyed Syrian newcomers report being employed, while 23% are actively looking for work. This is a significant improvement from employment figures reported in 2016, shortly after the first Syrians arrived as part of this initiative. Many Syrians spoke little or no English or French when they arrived. Since then, 89% have had their language skills assessed and 76% participated in government-funded language training.
