The African Scholars Initiative (ASI-Canada), has presented a report to Canada’s House of Commons Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration regarding the higher rates of study permit rejections for students from African countries. Even though Nigeria is one of Canada’s top source countries for international students, holds a top 30 global ranking, and has English as an official language, Nigerian and other African students are systematically being discriminated against and having their study permits rejected by Canadian immigration officers with a notably high rate.
