However, judging from the number of approvals in January in the past five years, the highest number of student visa approvals in mainland China appeared in January 2019, reaching 5,495.
03 TOP 20 source countries
India remains the top source country of study visas for Canada, and the number of new student visas from India in January (12,875) is four times that of the second largest source country, China (3,210). France, Japan, Germany and the United States are also among the top 20 source countries. Hong Kong also approved 540 Canadian study visas in January this year, ranking in the top 20
In addition, let's review the historical data of the number of new Canadian study permits in the past seven years (2015-2021) worldwide (see the table below)
It can be seen that from 2015 to 2021, the number of new Canadian students in the world has increased year by year. Only in 2020, due to the impact of the epidemic, the number of new students has dropped a lot, and since 2021, the number of Canadian student visa approvals has ushered in an all-time high, getting a big harvest. In addition, the number of student visa approvals in January this year increased by 40% compared to January 2021 last year, and it is expected that this year 2022 will be another high-yield year for student visa approvals!
