The new rules announced by Canada for international students are going to be implemented from January, according to which from January 1, 2024, it will be necessary to show funds of $20,635 to obtain a study permit, which was $10,000 for a long time.

Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced this in early December. He had also warned that states which do not help students for accommodation may be subject to a cap on visas. At the same time, the permission for international students who are currently in Canada to work more than 20 hours per week has been extended until April 30, 2024.

The government says students who had submitted study permit applications by December 7 will also be eligible to work more than 20 hours. The Immigration Minister also hinted that increasing the working hours per week may be considered after the exemption expires, but said that if the exemption is granted to work 40 hours per week, students will not be allowed to come to Canada.

The reason will be found and they will not focus on studies. It is worth noting that in view of the increased cost of living in Canada, the government has increased the limit of showing funds so that students do not have difficulty in living here.
