The report said that most international students have posted on social media in the past about the difficulties they are facing in Canada, which is also one of the reasons for the decline in Canada study visas. It is noteworthy that Canada is currently facing a housing crisis. Here the population is more and the houses are less, due to which the prices of houses have increased much more than necessary. In such a situation, the students going to study here are facing problems.

According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), 3 lakh 63 thousand 541 Indian students had applied in the year 2022, while by October 2023, 2 lakh 61 thousand 310 Indian students have applied.
