No surprise here:

"The Canadian government issued 6,349 study permits to Americans in 2016, up from 5,683 the previous year. (Final figures were not yet available for 2017.) "

@ton Reflects what we are hearing anecdotally in the BC psot-sec system. Not just US study permits up, but all international study permits on the rise.

I see mostly one term one year study abroad perspective but many of my students are hesitant about the US now.

And, friend's daughter has received admission to university in Boston but is waiting for result from Ryerson. Partly because of location. 2 years ago she had her heart set on NYC or Boston but no longer. Her mom will be a lot happier about fees in Canada.
