Study, work, and settle in Canada is the ultimate aim of most Indian students. Thousands of Indians go to Canada every year to complete their studies. Out of them, many apply for PR after completing their studies. Almost 86,000 Indian nationals, including Indian students, received Canadian PR in 2019. The aging population and shortage of skilled labor are the foremost reasons behind it. Canadian government knows immigrants can play a significant role in supporting Canada’s economy. As a matter of fact, the government has an ambitious target of welcoming over 1 million immigrants by the end of 2022. Even in these challenging times, Canada is proactively helping temporary immigrants, including international students, which shows the government is serious about achieving this target.
Graduating in Canada gives international students enough time to acquaint themselves with the Canadian lifestyle, rules, and regulations. Further, during studies, the students can work part-time, which helps them set into the Canadian work environment and gain valuable experience. The Canadian government allows international students to work part-time for up to 20 hours a week and 40 hours per week during holidays. Studying in Canada gives them enough time to decide whether they would like to stay in this country. And even if they choose to go back to their home country, they could be easily absorbed in the related industry because of superior education. Otherwise, they can apply for a Post-graduation work permit in Canada.

Canada encourages international students for permanent residency.
