May 18, 2018

The City of Windsor in Ontario is struggling with an influx of international students, reports CBC. With over 3,000 international students attending St Clair College, CBC reports that many students are having difficulties with finding housing and that transit is struggling to manage the number of commuters. International students “were telling us that they were still looking for places and that they were having difficulties finding places, said Windsor Building Department Manager of Inspections Rob Vani. “And they were looking all over the city, not just around the university or St. Clair College.” A photo submitted to CBC showed a single home that housed 20 tenants. St Clair is reportedly building infrastructure to house another 500 beds. CBC (1) | CBC (2)
