Hi, I was wondering if you had data set/ figures of how many student permits are applied for offshore vs onshore?

Thank you for the datasets. I request to see international student enrolment by country and province of origin with province of destination in Canada and educational institution and field of study in which they are/were enroled. The purpose is to compare socio-cultural aspects of sending and receiving provinces with Canadian educational initiatives.

I would like to see data for international students, categorized into fields like country of origin, University of study (if possible), course enrolled in. I am doing a research on students from India, studying in Canadian universities.

definitely agree with Shirley. in the past there was information related to study permit holders by age, so we could at least infer about elementary/secondary versus post-high school.

Hi John, thank you for your feedback. I will share this with the data owners.

I would love to be able to see a breakdown of what kinds of institutions these students came to attend; universities, secondary/elementary schools, language schools, colleges, etc.

Hi Shirley, good recommendation! I will forward your comment to the data owner for review.
