Rebuilding Canada post-pandemic through supporting international students: Opinion

November 3, 2021
Canada needs international students to help it rebuild after the COVID-19 pandemic, writes Martin Basiri, cofounder of ApplyBoard. Basiri argues that Canada needs immigrants to fill its jobs, and international student immigrants are eager to succeed in Canada and contribute to the economy. Basiri says that Canada must fuel immigration and draw in international students by providing additional supports and opportunities to succeed. “The more people around the world who have improved access to global education, just like I did, the stronger and more prosperous Canada and the world will be,” writes Basiri.
