Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC) study reveals that Ontario’s share of international students increased substantially. If the province’s share in the early 2000s was around 37 percent, in two decades this amount reached almost half, 49 percent. However, British Columbia’s share decreased during the same period of time. According to the study, “as the province attracting the second-largest number of international students, British Columbia saw its share fall from 31 percent in the 2001-to-2004 period to 23 percent in the 2015-to-2019 period.”
