Trevor Neiman believes that retaining high-skilled international students can help expand Canada’s workforce. He shares his perspective in an article by the Financial Post about the BCC’s immigration survey and Canada’s recent decision to lift the cap on hours worked by international students to tackle the labour crisis.

“Currently, a small proportion of international students apply for permanent residency after graduating. The ability to obtain meaningful employment is a major determinator of whether an international student decides to settle permanently.”
