Management and International Business (MIB) Program Overview

Management students on location in Peru, France, and Japan

Business Is Borderless

The next generation of leaders will have the skills and experience to view business through a truly international lens.

Founded on the University of Toronto's reputation as one of the world's top 20 universities, we equip our students with a powerful combination of management fundamentals, international work experience, and exposure to leadership across cultures and borders—all in a four-year honours degree.

Management and International Business (MIB) is the University of Toronto's only international undergraduate business program. Unlike comparable programs at Wharton and Berkeley, our students must complete an international work term in addition to a study-abroad term and two domestic work terms: in total, 12 months of work experience before graduation.

And that's why reviewers at Harvard, UBC, and York University have unanimously endorsed the MIB program.

Work Abroad, Study Abroad

The University of Toronto has formal agreements with 150 partner universities in 50 countries . We've leveraged these relationships to establish a rapidly growing network of academic partners in the Management and International Business program, including:

Our international partners are all leading, internationally recognized academic institutions that are located in or near major business hubs and offer courses in English.

Experience to Lead

MIB students are among the top scholars at the University of Toronto. Each year, we select the top 40 students from over 1,000 applicants who meet high academic standards and demonstrate a commitment to succeed when living abroad.

We look for candidates who are strongly committed to developing their leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills. Our thorough selection process (you’ll be formally interviewed by a professor) considers all aspects of your experience: your grades, your activities outside of school, and your passion for a career in international business. Proficiency in a second language is an asset, but we also offer an opportunity to earn two full credits in the language of your choosing—before you begin your work and study-abroad terms. You can take either four courses in a single language, or three courses in one language and one course in a second.

Our specialized program offers internationally focused courses in business leadership, financial management, corporate strategy, business ethics, and marketing. The MIB degree is made up of eight study terms and three work terms, including at least one study term and one work term abroad.

A sample MIB sequence over four years:

International Experience Is in Demand

U of T alumni consistently rank among the most employable university graduates in the world . As a Management and International Business graduate with 12 months of industry experience, you will be in high demand by organizations in the global marketplace.

  • ACCOUNTING: Audit and assurance, budgets and cash flow, internal controls, corporate and personal tax.

Strong Support at Home and Abroad

We’re committed to providing you with outstanding support as you prepare to work and study abroad, and while you are away. Leading up to your international work and study terms, you'll receive one-on-one career coaching, academic counseling, and job search training. You'll also be invited to participate in information sessions with industry professionals, networking events, mock interviews with employers, and mentoring opportunities with alumni and professionals. While you're away, you have a strong network of academic and personal support to help manage the complexities of living, working, and studying abroad.

In your first year, our mandatory International Work Term Preparation Course will prepare you for the challenges and opportunities of job-hunting and working in Canada and globally. The course focuses on key career skills in domestic and international contexts, including preparing for the job search, career planning, and workplace skills development. Through a series of interactive and applied activities, you will develop your communication and leadership skills, build connections with other co-op students, and develop a network of potential employers in Canada and abroad.

New Program!

Credit credentials

A credit credential includes courses with post-secondary credit applied.

These credits will be used towards your specific program and may be accepted towards a credential at SAIT or a different post-secondary institution.

The credit credentials include a bachelor's degree, applied degree, diploma, certificate and post-diploma certificate.

Bachelor Degree

SAIT has bachelor's degree programs in business, construction, and hospitality and tourism management.

Bachelor's degrees are generally four-year programs, but you have up to 10 academic years to complete your courses.

Applied Degree

SAIT's full-time applied degree programs involve one year of study through classes and lab work followed by one year of directed studies in a workplace setting. This builds on the completion of a recognized two-year diploma, which you must have to be admitted to an applied degree program.

You then have seven academic years to finish your applied degree, starting from the day you begin the first course in that program.

At SAIT, over 40 full-time diploma programs cover a broad range of areas, from aircraft maintenance to travel and tourism.

Most diploma programs are completed in two years, though you can take up to seven academic years to complete the requirements.

Certificate

SAIT has several certificate programs in the sciences, health and trades.

These programs provide the essential skills to start a career but are shorter in length than SAIT's diploma programs - usually a year or less. However, you have up to five years to complete your program.

Post-Diploma Certificate

These programs build on skills developed through a diploma or degree program and combine classroom instruction with a workplace practicum.

They are often completed in a year or less.

Journeyperson

A certified journeyperson is recognized as a qualified and skilled person in a trade and is entitled to the wages and benefits associated with that trade. You must complete all apprenticeship periods and pass the exams to earn a journeyperson designation.

Non-credit credentials

A non-credit credential comprises courses and programs designed for professional or personal development.

Because these do not have post-secondary credits attached, they cannot be used towards any of the credentials above. We also cannot guarantee an external institute will accept these courses or credentials for transfer credit.

SAIT's non-credit certificates of achievement and completion are offered through Continuing Education and Professional Studies .

Certificate of Achievement

Certificates of achievement recognize the completion of a program that includes a formal evaluation of performance and a minimum of 144 (required and elective) course hours.

Certificates of achievement typically develop broader, complex skill sets. As of July 1, 2022, you have up to three years to complete the certificate. If you began these programs before July 1, 2022, you still have five calendar years to complete the program from when you began the first course.

Certificate of Completion

Certificates of completion recognize the completion of a program that includes a formal evaluation of performance and a minimum of 30 to a maximum of 143 course hours.

These certificates are shorter in duration than certificates of achievement and offer a focused education program. As of July 1, 2022, you have up to three years to complete the certificate. If you began before July 1, 2022, you will have five calendar years to complete the program from when you began the first course.

Professional Certificate

Program certificates recognize completion of a program that includes the formal evaluation of performance, and that is a minimum of one year in length.

These certificates have program-specific admission requirements.

Micro-credential

A micro-credential recognizes the completion of a non-credit course that includes a formal performance evaluation and verifies you have demonstrated specific competencies.

Micro-credentials focus on the mastery of specific skills. You receive a digital, shareable badge upon completing a SAIT micro-credential (SAITMicro).

Program length

Estimated program length if you study full-time (nine or more credits per semester.) Actual program length will vary based on the number of courses you are registered in and successfully complete per semester.

You must complete your credential within the timeframes listed below:

  • Applied degree: up to seven academic years to complete all courses.
  • Diploma: up to seven academic years to complete all courses.
  • Certificates: up to five academic years to complete all courses.

Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design curriculum and its delivery are designed to address current social issues pertinent to the design industry. This enables students to broaden their understanding of their place within the world.

Fundamental to the vision of the program is the balance of creative and conceptual thinking with the technical and business aspects of the profession. Courses follow a logical sequence with the degree of difficulty building vertically from first year to fourth year.

The various streams provide a range of design problems building in size and scope, from simple to complex in various design sectors. The curriculum builds on fundamental introductions that ensures a strong foundation for students to apply additional more complex learning and skills developed later in the program.

Studio projects are designed to mimic professional practice and require applied theory, creativity and strong technical knowledge. Curriculum is also connected horizontally across each semester to help support the learning in courses happening simultaneously. This demonstrates the inter-connected knowledge and skills required to practice in the industry.

The program provides many opportunities that expose students to practicing professionals and professional practice. Industry leaders and representatives from professional associations like ARIDO and IDC are invited into the classroom as jurors and guest speakers throughout the four years. The internship also provides professional design work experience for students before they enter their final year of study.

The curriculum is student-centric and designed to equip students with the skills that are required for entry-level design positions and advanced study. Manual skills such as drafting, drawing and model making are developed alongside digital skills using current software. Students are also well-versed in the applicable building codes and regulations required to practice in Ontario. Students are exposed to valuable research skills and encouraged to continue their learning past graduation.

Program goals

Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program aspires to:

  • Develop confident, creative and critical thinkers that can solve a variety of problems thoughtfully, improving the quality of the built environment and protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.
  • Equip students with the tools to think independently and ethically to ensure technically, environmentally, and socially responsible decision-making.
  • Deliver current and relevant curriculum that incorporates equity, diversity and inclusion. This encourages students to create spaces that foster inclusivity and look at design from various perspectives within diverse communities, involving numerous stakeholders.
  • Inform students regarding the various facets of the profession, engaging them with designers and industry affiliates.
  • Encourage continuous professional and personal growth, instilling a desire to contribute to the profession and society at large. The program encourages students to become active participants in the design community, become members of their local Association, write their NCIDQ exams, give back to the community and become progressive leaders in the profession.
  • Prepare graduates for entry-level design positions, equipped with the required knowledge and skills for employment in the diverse design industry, ensuring they possess the body of knowledge necessary to respond to social and environmental issues, while designing interior spaces that are technically proficient, code-compliant, conceptually strong, sustainable and all-inclusive.
  • Provide enhanced opportunities for students to pursue post-graduate studies, employment, research and/or further their academic studies and/or credentials.

Humber is proud to have the highest graduate employment and employer satisfaction rate of the GTA colleges based on Colleges Ontario’s key performance indicators for college graduates in 2022-2023.

Program Overview

Humber’s Bachelor of Commerce - International Business degree program will help you develop the knowledge and applied skills you need to carve out a career not only in a multinational company but also in nimble, fast-paced small- and medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurial ventures that are open to the outside world. Our program combines a balanced approach to teaching business featuring case studies, problem solving, modelling and data analytics in support of decision-making. Course content, skill-building activities, writing and applied projects maintain a strong focus on the three major pillars of international business: marketing, finance and operations.

Our program starts with a foundation of business studies in areas such as consumer behaviour, micro and macroeconomics, finance and accounting, law, marketing, and operations management. Specialization courses in international business will give you the opportunity to acquire practical skills through applied projects such as creating a full business and strategic plan to launch a business in an external market. You will gain experience developing processes from concept through to execution. Examples of specialization courses include Intercultural Communications, International Finance, Supply Chain Management, International Logistics, International Marketing, International Trade Law, and Strategic Business Analytics.

You will learn from experienced professors and a network of industry professionals who provide feedback and evaluation on industry projects, culminating with the final semester program capstone course International Business Project. In that capstone course, you will work with a real-world business enterprise and develop a comprehensive international business expansion plan for them.

Current students, please make sure to review your MyHumber Academic Progress report to confirm which courses you should register into for your Winter semester. Courses with in-person requirements will likely also have online components. Humber may need to change plans for in-person learning, subject to government and public health directives and/or additional health and safety considerations.

Work-Integrated Learning  

Work-integrated learning  .

The program requires that you complete 14 weeks/420 hours of a paid field experience in the summer between your sixth and seventh semesters. This gives you the hands-on, real-world experience that employers value. Your field experience will give you the opportunity to explore the field you would like to work in when you graduate. We will work with employers and our industry partners to help you identify opportunities to pursue.

Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) at Humber

Work-integrated learning.

Work-integrated learning opportunities prepare you for your future career. You will apply what you’ve learned in class and in real-world environments through a wide range of academic, community and industry partnerships. These work-integrated learning opportunities may include field experiences, professional practicums and co-operative education.

Field Experience

Professional Practicum

Programs requiring a professional practicum offer practice-based experience or work hours for a professional license or certification. Students work under the direct supervision of an experienced professional. Placements are unpaid.

Co-operative Education

Students in co-op programs gain experience through paid work terms in their field of study that become progressively more complex as their skill level increases.

Optional Co-operative Education

Students in co-op programs gain experience through paid work terms in their field of study that become progressively more complex as their skill level increases. The co-op portion of this program is optional.

Capstone Presentations: the Most Comprehensive Project in the Program

The capstone report and presentation are the largest and deepest deliverables that students produce in the program. It requires students to pull together the sum of the knowledge and skills they have acquired throughout the first seven semesters of the program while they prepare a comprehensive business plan for a client company (an actual business working with their group). The brief includes planning the expansion of a product or service offering outside Canada (if the host organization is based in Canada), or in Canada (if the host organization is based in a foreign country).

The capstone project operates like a consulting project in which students have to gather and analyze data, complete missing data, and draft plans for all aspects of the expanded business (for, but not limited to, the three pillars of International Business: international marketing, international operations, and international finance).

Students prepare their presentations, including their recommendations, in a persuasive way. Presentations are made to an audience including other students, faculty, and a panel made up of Program Advisory Committee members and outside industry people), and representatives of client organizations (the companies that teamed with each group of students).

Students rise to the occasion while working with faculty mentors who guide and motivate students throughout the process. In business, this kind of advisory work is complex, but the calibre of student work is always really high. Students who have shown their reports to prospective employers have said that it played a decisive role in securing a position after graduating. The exposure to the different areas covered during the capstone project gives students a good overview of the aspects of business that appeal to them most for career prospects.

Graduate Testimonial

"I attribute my success at Humber to the faculty who have taught, mentored, and supported me throughout. Each of my professors has impacted my experience positively—and each in their own unique way. I was fortunate to have an incredible Program Co-ordinator, Pierre-Pascal Gendron, who early on made an effort to guide me, and ultimately helped me realize my potential. Pierre-Pascal challenged and pushed me; he helped me to mature not only as a student, but also as an individual and young professional."

— Julia, Program Graduate

Student Image

"Working on group projects was the highlight of the International Business program, with engagements that facilitated cultural exploration through research. The program attracts individuals from diverse backgrounds with international perspectives. Professors provided insights and real-life examples to make lectures interesting and engaging, with a challenging and rewarding project structure. I had the opportunity to do a semester abroad at Robert Gordon University (Scotland) and both schools’ study abroad teams were very helpful. Throughout my entire experience at Humber, the Program Coordinator, Prof. Pierre-Pascal Gendron, went above and beyond to support my academic and professional success."

Your Career

Business today is highly complex, interconnected and increasingly global with vast amounts of goods, services and capital crossing borders daily. Our program will provide you with the broad perspective and understanding needed to develop a successful career in business here in Canada and anywhere around the world.

The international trade sector is absolutely central to the Canadian economy. According to Statistics Canada, total international trade (exports plus imports of goods and services to and from other countries) continues to account for a very significant proportion of Canada's gross domestic product at current market prices. In addition to trade in goods and commodities, Canada is a major player in the services trade including areas such as energy, finance and financial services, mining, and technical services. This is a fast-growing sector that has tripled in value in the last 25 years and carries increasing demand for skills in all areas.

Globalization is not a smooth path. Global market instability created by unpredictable events (e.g., the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact of climate change, the dematerialization of finance and cryptocurrencies) requires professionals to be trained with up-to-date concepts and methods and exposed to new ideas by established industry professionals.

Our degree is cross-functional and will prepare you for a range of industries depending on your preferences and skills including foreign investment; external business development; logistics; customs; freight forwarding; trade consulting; international finance and risk management; and international marketing, sales, and research.

A day in the life of an international business professional could involve reaching all the way around the world, either in person or virtually. Your day-to-day work will be varied and exciting – everything from drafting a full-fledged business plan for expansion into a new international market, through managing foreign exchange risk, to planning and executing the logistics of getting a product overseas.

Most private college courses and/or credentials are not acceptable as admission requirements for Niagara College programs.

Please contact the Admissions office at [email protected] for assistance.

Program Requirements

Transportation.

  • Students are responsible for their own transportation in order to complete program requirements which may not be readily accessible by public transportation.
  • Program requirements could include co-ops, placements, volunteer requirements, practical labs, field projects, assignments, clinicals, or any other off-campus visits required as part of the program’s curriculum.

Computer/Technology Requirements

Students are responsible for ensuring that they have a Microsoft Windows 10 based desktop or laptop system that meets or exceeds the following general personal computer technology requirements:

  • A desktop or laptop system running on an updated Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.
  • Minimum 256GB SSD storage and 8 GB memory.
  • An integrated or peripheral video camera, microphone and speaker system.
  • Reliable internet connectivity with Broadband capabilities (a minimum download speed of 5 Mbps) is recommended.

Niagara College will not be able to provide support for systems different than the above specifications. Any provided software may not operate properly. Academic software for your courses (supported under the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system) will be made available for download and remote use. Access will also be provided to remote high performance computer labs if software downloads are not feasible.

Note: There is no support for Chromebooks or Apple products for this program. ( learn more )

The technology requirements indicate there is no support for Chromebooks or Apple products. Can I still take my program if I have a Macbook or Chromebook?

For most programs, the recommendation is to have a MS Windows 10 computer (as outlined in the "Computer/Technology Requirements" section on this page) for an optimal experience and for ease of downloading academic software. The reliability of remote connections to college computers and software cannot be guaranteed for Macbook and Chromebook users.

The Microsoft Office suite products that are available free to Niagara College students though Office 365 do have versions that work with Macbooks and Chromebooks, and the majority of internet-based applications will work as well. However, some program-specific software is designed to run on Windows 10, and the successful download of these applications cannot be guaranteed. Our Learning Management System (LMS) at Niagara College is Blackboard, and while students can access Blackboard through an internet browser, for some assignments and tests there is a layer of security that uses a proctored browser. The proctored browser will not function on Macbooks nor Chromebooks.

Students assume the risk of a compromised virtual experience if they choose to participate without the recommended technology.

Computer/technology requirements may be subject to change without notice.

All costs associated with program requirements are the responsibility of the student.

Canada's foreign student push 'mismatched' job market, data shows

Nearly 800,000 international students got permits to study business, far more than health care or trades.

international business program in canada

How Canada's recruitment of foreign students failed to match labour market needs

Social sharing.

Canada's recruitment of international students has tilted strongly toward filling spots in business programs, while doing little to meet the demand for workers in health care and the skilled trades, according to a CBC News analysis of federal data.

CBC obtained figures from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) showing the fields of education chosen by foreign students who received study permits from Ottawa to attend college or university in each year since 2018. 

Experts say the figures demonstrate that neither federal nor provincial governments — nor Canadian colleges and universities themselves — focused international student recruitment squarely on filling the country's most pressing labour needs.

"What we're seeing with this data is that oversight was really lacking," said Rupa Banerjee, an associate professor at Toronto Metropolitan University who holds the Canada Research Chair in the economic inclusion of immigrants. 

The figures, which have not previously been made public, show that business-related programs accounted for 27 per cent of all study permits approved from 2018 to 2023, more than any other field. 

Over that same time period, just six per cent of all permits went to foreign students for health sciences, medicine or biological and biomedical sciences programs, while trades and vocational training programs accounted for 1.25 per cent. 

Banerjee says the data shows far too many foreign students were lured to Canada for post-secondary programs with little prospect of a good job in an in-demand field. 

"Instead of really trying to bring in the best and the brightest to fill the labour market gaps that need to be filled, what we're doing is bringing in low skill, low wage, expendable and exploitable temporary foreign workers in the form of students," Banerjee said in an interview.  

Recruitment not aligned with demand for skilled workers

She says the figures point to a failure by both federal and provincial governments to ensure that international student recruitment was in line with Canada's need for skilled workers. 

"Students are graduating from programs that are not particularly valuable in the labour market, that are not allowing them to get the jobs that will then allow them to transition and become productive Canadian permanent residents," Banerjee said. 

  • CBC Explains What's behind the problems with Canada's international student program?

The industries with the highest job vacancy rates and the largest absolute numbers of job vacancies have been generally consistent since 2018, both before and after the COVID-19 pandemic began: construction, health care and accommodation and food services, according to Statistics Canada data .

Yet from 2018 to 2023, the growth in the number of international students coming to Canada for business programs far outpaced the growth in any other post-secondary field. 

The number of study permits granted for programs in business management, marketing and related support services increased fivefold between 2018 and 2023. No other field of study saw anywhere near that rapid of an increase. 

The number of permits granted to non-business fields increased on average 1.7 times over the same time period, according to the data. The fields of health sciences (2.6 times) and computing/IT (2.4 times) saw the next-largest increases.         

Minister to raise issue Friday 

Marc Miller, the federal Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, told CBC News that he'll be raising the issue of better matching Canada's intake of newcomers to labour market needs when he meets provincial and territorial ministers responsible for immigration on Friday. 

"There is a responsibility of provinces in this ... to make sure that the programs that [colleges and universities] are offering to international students are the ones that fit the job market," Miller said Tuesday on Parliament Hill.  

  • CBC Investigates Canada's international student spike was blamed on private colleges. Here's what really happened

Foreign students pay significantly higher tuition fees than Canadians and have poured billions of dollars into the country's post-secondary institutions. CBC News revealed earlier this year that the biggest drivers of Canada's sharp increase in international students were public colleges, largely in Ontario. 

At the time, officials from several colleges with large foreign student enrolment told CBC News that they ramped up their international recruitment — at the urging of both federal and provincial governments — to fill the country's need for skilled workers.

"International students are needed to fill employment gaps," said a statement from Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ont., which topped the national list for international study permits in four of the past five years. "Our growth over the last few years has been tied to our mission: to meet workforce demands in the communities we serve." 

International students made up 70 per cent of the enrolment in Conestoga's business programs in 2021-22, according to Statistics Canada . 

  • Federal government announces 2-year cap on student permits

An official from Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ont., which had a nearly fivefold increase in its international student intake between 2018 and 2023, said its recruitment "mirrors and aligns with the federal government's own efforts to increase annual levels of immigration, including students, in order to meet the demand for skilled workers now and in the future." 

The new data showing how many foreign students came to Canada to study business raise questions about why it happened.  

Ottawa was warned about mismatch

The Trudeau government was warned about the misalignment more than a year before it finally clamped down on international student numbers. 

A September 2022 report from RBC questioned whether Canada was doing enough to match its recruitment of international students with demand in the labour force.

The report described a "misalignment between the study programs pursued by international students and labour market needs" and called for numbers to rise in health care, some trades and services and education. 

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister Marc Miller rises during question period in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Monday, March 18, 2024.

"I don't think that there was any effort or plan to match the enrolments by field of study to the needs of the labour market," said Parisa Mahboubi, a senior policy analyst at the C.D. Howe Institute, in an interview.

IRCC approved more than 776,000 permits for students to enrol in programs classed as "business/commerce" or "business management, marketing and related support services" during the six-year timeframe covered by the data.  

By contrast, about 143,000 study permits were issued over the same time period for programs classed as health sciences, 36,000 for trades and vocational programs and 6,300 for medicine. 

  • International students will be allowed to work 24 hours a week starting in September

Economist Armine Yalnizyan, the Atkinson Foundation's fellow on the future of workers, says there appears to have been "no rhyme or reason" to the pattern of international student recruitment. 

"It's selling a false bill of goods to the [students] that are coming here, because we don't need that many people that have expertise in business," Yalnizyan said in an interview.  

 "We need much closer scrutiny of what skills we are trying to build through our post-secondary institutions," Yalnizyan said. 

Akash Singh sits on a bed holding a phone.

As a student from India, Akash Singh paid $34,000 for a two-year business program through St. Clair College, one of Ontario's 24 public colleges. Singh studied at the college's Toronto campus, in a program delivered by Ace Acumen Academy as part of a public college-private partnership  open only to international students. 

Since getting his diploma in 2021, the only jobs that Singh, 22, has managed to land were as a security guard and in a McDonald's restaurant. 

  • Minister was warned about possible negative impacts of lifting international student work limit

"I thought I would do my course here, and if I get good marks, I'm going to find a good job related to that field," Singh said in an interview.  

"No opportunities are here for business students," he said. "I have been trying to find jobs in finance, and it's not possible."

Singh says recruiters for Canadian colleges based in India strongly encouraged students to apply for business programs, telling them that admission to the program and jobs after graduation would be easy to obtain. 

He says to his knowledge, none of the students in his cohort actually found work in business-related fields.

Singh's challenges in finding relevant work do not reflect what most international business students have experienced, said Ron Seguin, senior vice president international relations at St. Clair College. 

"It's not a story we hear often, quite honestly," said Seguin in an interview. "Those employable skills that the student learns can be applied to many sectors, and that's more the case with business than anything else." 

'Fountain of money' for colleges

Alex Usher, president of Higher Education Strategy Associates, a consulting firm, says the explosive growth of international students in business programs was largely driven by colleges in Ontario seeking ways to make up for provincial underfunding. 

"I don't think it had much to do with labour market needs, I think what it had to do with was colleges' financial needs," Usher said in an interview. "It was a fountain of money." 

  • Analysis Ontario public colleges depend on foreign students' money. Should they?

He says business programs are relatively cheap to run, especially in contrast with clinical and technical courses. 

With colleges charging each international student in the neighbourhood of $15,000 per academic year for such a program, a less-expensive-to-run course, such as business, leaves the school more revenue to spend elsewhere. 

Photo of Alex Usher standing beside a bookshelf.

Usher believes the provinces deserve more of the blame than the federal government for the makeup of the international student body. 

That's because the provinces have responsibility to oversee the type of programs their colleges and universities offer. Although IRCC has the role of approving study permits, the provinces have the power to limit the number of international students allowed to enrol in post-secondary programs. 

  • Ontario colleges to face biggest hit from foreign student cap

Before this year's federal cap, the only province that exercised this power was Quebec, which required each international student to obtain an authorization letter from the provincial ministry of education. In other provinces, all a student needed before applying for a study permit was admission from a college or university program. 

"It was possible for provinces to regulate the numbers, it's just that nine out of 10 of them chose not to," said Usher.

Ontario's Minister of Colleges and Universities Jill Dunlop was not available for an interview, but her spokesperson provided a statement.

"Colleges and universities are autonomous and have the freedom to make their own decisions regarding international enrolment," said Liz Tuomi, Dunlop's press secretary in an email to CBC News. 

Jill Dunlop points during a press conference.

However, Ontario is barring international students from enrolling in one-year business/management programs while the ministry conducts a review, said Tuomi.

She said the priorities for Ontario's reduced allotment of international student permits will be programs that "help prepare graduates for in-demand jobs," including skilled trades, health human resources, hospitality, child care and the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math).

Marketa Evans, president and CEO of Colleges Ontario, the umbrella group representing the 24 publicly funded colleges in the province says a "significant number of international students" are enrolled in programs that fill key labour market needs, including logistics, computer programming, business analytics, hospitality management, travel and tourism and culinary arts. 

900 international nursing students in Ontario colleges 

"Students choose what programs they take, and Ontario's public colleges offer dozens of business programs that have clear labour market value," said Evans in a statement.

Some 18,000 international students are currently enrolled in programs related to advanced manufacturing and technology, while 900 international students are enrolled in nursing, according to figures provided by Colleges Ontario. 

  • Conestoga College under fire by students, union leaders for aggressive international student recruitment

The data obtained from IRCC show large numbers of study permits issued in which the specific field of study was labelled other (367,000) or unspecified (339,000).

IRCC officials said this is a result of how students filled in their study permit applications: "other" represents when an applicant indicated their chosen field of study was not among the listed categories, and "unspecified" represents when the applicant left the field blank.

METHODOLOGY: HOW CBC ANALYZED STUDY PERMITS BY FIELD OF STUDY

The data presented in this story was compiled and provided by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) on March 18, 2024 and represents all new and extended study permits approved by Ottawa between calendar years 2018 to 2023. The tables provided had two fields of study categorized as "Other" (~12% of permits) and "Unspecified" (~12% of permits). Between 5-7 per cent of geography fields were identified as "Unknown/Unspecified". 

IRCC explained that "Other" is used "when a chosen field of study is not listed in a selection" and that "Unspecified" is used "when the system did not register a field of study. This is due [to] the field being left blank by applicants". In addition, "Unknown/Unspecified" is used "when the geographic location is not available or not entered into the system".

On April 23, IRCC provided a second "revised" data table, in which all values between 0 and 5 were suppressed "for privacy reasons to prevent individuals from being identified when IRCC data is compiled and compared to publicly available statistics". All others were rounded down by a multiple of 5 for the same reason. As a result of this rounding, some of the summed-up values in cells no longer matched the totals by geographies, years and programs.

In both tables, overall trends show the same significant growth of permits related to business programs and the same overrepresentation of those programs compared to other fields.

In an effort to present the most exhaustive and accurate numbers available – as figures have not previously been made public – CBC News has retained the March 2024 table where the values are not rounded for its analysis. One exception was made: to reflect significant revisions made by IRCC that were not rounding, cells showing a discrepancy of more than 5 between the old and new tables were updated with their revised number. Those updates largely affect study permits in Quebec (2018-2023), Unknown/Unspecified geographies (2018-2023) and a handful of 2023 programs in Ontario, BC and Alberta. All totals were recalculated to reflect the true sum of values in cells.

To protect the privacy of individuals, geographies and/or programs with 0-4 approved permits in a given year were replaced with "<5" in the publicly downloadable and searchable chart, however, the accurate values were used in all analyses and visualizations.

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

British Columbia, Manitoba and Quebec Issued PNP Invitations This Week!

Discover insights into the results of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws held across Canada during the first week of May, 2024

What are PNPs?

The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), allow all Canadian provinces to define specific criteria for their own immigration pathways. Each province administers distinct nominee programs designed to meet its unique requirements. These initiatives frequently focus on attracting international graduates, entrepreneurs, and experienced professionals in different occupations. The selection criteria may differ based on factors like labor market demands and demographic gaps within the province.

Numerous PNPs conduct draws where they invite candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence nomination. Some of them require candidates to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile to be eligible for these draws. In contrast, certain programs directly invite candidates from the Express Entry pool, even if they haven’t formally applied for consideration.

Recent Draws Across Canada

The frequency of the draws held and the amount of invitations sent, depend entirely on each of the provinces. These are the provinces that held draws this week:

British Columbia

The province operates several immigration streams divided into two categories:

  • British Columbia Skills Immigration

This province operates a number of different immigration programs enabling eligible candidates to secure  Canadian permanent residence  in the province. The federal government has granted the province of Quebec significantly more autonomy in immigration policies and procedures, which is why Quebec’s immigration programs are often treated separately from other provinces.

A total of  1,415 applicants were invited to apply for permanent selection. People invited in the this draw, met the following criteria:

  • They had a level 7   oral proficiency (or higher) in French according to the  Échelle québécoise des niveaux de compétence en français des personnes immigrantes adultes  (PDF 1.88 Mb)  (Québec scale of French proficiency levels for adult immigrants) or its equivalent.
