As we all know, the Canadian Government levied a cap on new international study permits for 2024 and the allocation for province-wise study permits has already started. So far, we covered the significant updates on study permit applications for provinces like British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, and Ontario province in detail. Now, the latest province to join the list is Nova Scotia, which has released the details of its international student allocation for 2024.

The good news is that all the major Canadian provinces have now resumed the processing of study permit applications for cap-affected students. This means that students interested in pursuing their higher education in Canada can now breathe a sigh of relief, as all the provinces have outlined their allocation of study permit applications for the upcoming year.

Nova Scotia, in particular, has received an allocation of 12,900 applications for 2024 and the distribution of these applications is listed below,

  • 90% or 11,565 will be allotted to 10 universities in the province and the Nova Scotia Community College.
  • 710 will go to more than 12 private colleges.
  • Additionally, 526 applications are reserved for nine different language schools.
  • And the rest being set aside for unexpected circumstances and new programs.

When discussing this distribution, Nova Scotia's Advanced Education Minister, Brian Wong, stated, "We have worked hard trying to make sure that 12,900 number is allocated fairly amongst the institutions. We also wanted to make sure that schools that were ready for some growth got the opportunity to be able to grow."

Looking at the bigger picture, out of the total 606,000 new study permits planned for all the provinces, 384,600 have already been allocated to six provinces for international students to study in Canada. The breakdown is as follows: 

  • Ontario: 235,000
  • British Columbia: 83,000
  • Alberta: 41,000
  • Nova Scotia: 12,900
  • New Brunswick: 9,400*
  • Prince Edward Island: 3,300*

This means that a significant portion of the study permit allocations have been claimed, leaving 221,000 still to be allocated among the remaining provinces, including Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, Newfoundland, and Labrador.

With over 221,000 study permits still to be allocated and other study permits in the six provinces not fully claimed but just revealed, it is clear that the demand for pursuing education in Canada remains on the higher end.
