Canada to stabilize growth and decrease number of new international student permits issued to approximately 360,000 for 2024

From: Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada

News release

International students enrich our communities and are a critical part of Canada’s social, cultural and economic fabric. In recent years, the integrity of the international student system has been threatened. Some institutions have significantly increased their intakes to drive revenues, and more students have been arriving in Canada without the proper supports they need to succeed. Rapid increases in the number of international students arriving in Canada also puts pressure on housing, health care and other services. As we work to better protect international students from bad actors and support sustainable population growth in Canada, the government is moving forward with measures to stabilize the number of international students in Canada.

January 22, 2024—Ottawa— International students enrich our communities and are a critical part of Canada’s social, cultural and economic fabric. In recent years, the integrity of the international student system has been threatened. Some institutions have significantly increased their intakes to drive revenues, and more students have been arriving in Canada without the proper supports they need to succeed. Rapid increases in the number of international students arriving in Canada also puts pressure on housing, health care and other services. As we work to better protect international students from bad actors and support sustainable population growth in Canada, the government is moving forward with measures to stabilize the number of international students in Canada.

The Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship announced today that the Government of Canada will set an intake cap on international student permit applications to stabilize new growth for a period of two years. For 2024, the cap is expected to result in approximately 360,000 approved study permits, a decrease of 35% from 2023. In the spirit of fairness, individual provincial and territorial caps have been established, weighted by population, which will result in much more significant decreases in provinces where the international student population has seen the most unsustainable growth. Study permit renewals will not be impacted. Those pursuing master’s and doctoral degrees, and elementary and secondary education are not included in the cap. Current study permit holders will not be affected.

IRCC will allocate a portion of the cap to each province and territory, who will then distribute the allocation among their designated learning institutions. To implement the cap, as of January 22, 2024, every study permit application submitted to IRCC will also require an attestation letter from a province or territory. Provinces and territories are expected to establish a process for issuing attestation letters to students by no later than March 31, 2024.

These temporary measures will be in place for two years, and the number of new study permit applications that will be accepted in 2025 will be re-assessed at the end of this year. During this period, the Government of Canada will continue to work with provinces and territories, designated learning institutions and national education stakeholders on developing a sustainable path forward for international students, including finalizing a recognized institution framework, determining long-term sustainable levels of international students and ensuring post-secondary institutions are able to provide adequate levels of student housing.

In order to better align the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program, we are changing the eligibility criteria:

  • Starting September 1, 2024, international students who begin a study program that is part of a curriculum licensing arrangement will no longer be eligible for a post­graduation work permit upon graduation. Under curriculum licensing agreements, students physically attend a private college that has been licensed to deliver the curriculum of an associated public college. These programs have seen significant growth in attracting international students in recent years, though they have less oversight than public colleges and they act as a loophole with regards to post-graduation work permit eligibility.
  • Graduates of master’s degree programs will soon be eligible to apply for a 3-year work permit. Under current criteria, the length of a post­graduation work permit is based solely on the length of an individual’s study program, hindering master’s graduates by limiting the amount of time they have to gain work experience and potentially transition to permanent residence.

In the weeks ahead, open work permits will only be available to spouses of international students in master’s and doctoral programs. The spouses of international students in other levels of study, including undergraduate and college programs, will no longer be eligible.

The important measures announced today complement other recently announced reforms to the International Student Program. Taken together, they aim to ensure genuine students receive the support they require and have the resources they need for an enriching study experience in Canada, while at the same time stabilizing the overall number of students arriving and alleviating pressures on housing, health care and other services in Canada.

“International students are vital to Canada and enrich our communities. As such, we have an obligation to ensure that they have access to the resources they need for an enriching academic experience. In Canada, today, this isn’t always the case. Today, we are announcing additional measures to protect a system that has become so lucrative that it has opened a path for its abuse. Enough is enough. Through the decisive measures announced today, we are striking the right balance for Canada and ensuring the integrity of our immigration system while setting students up for the success they hope for.” – The Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship

Quick facts

In the coming months, we will continue to work to provide clear pathways to permanent residence for students with in-demand skills and explore new measures to better transition international students to the labour force.  

The department has introduced several measures recently to make sure the International Student Program works for in-coming students, as well as the country as a whole, including:

  • On January 1, 2024,  the cost-of-living requirement  for study permit applicants was updated to better reflect the true cost of living in Canada and help prevent student vulnerability and exploitation.
  • Since December 1, 2023, post-secondary designated learning institutions have been required to confirm every letter of acceptance submitted by an applicant outside Canada directly with IRCC. This enhanced verification process protects prospective students from fraud and ensures that study permits are issued based only on genuine letters of acceptance.
  • In 2024, we intend to implement targeted pilots aimed at helping underrepresented cohorts of international students pursue their studies in Canada.

What We Know About Multivitamins and Memory

New research suggests a daily vitamin can improve cognition. But that doesn’t mean everyone should take one.

A person in a yellow shirt pours pills from a bottle into his or her hand.

By Alice Callahan and Dana G. Smith

A new study reported that adults 60 and older who took a daily multivitamin for two years scored higher on memory and cognitive tests than those who took a placebo — a rare example of a clinical trial finding that a nutritional supplement might actually benefit healthy people.

“It suggests that multivitamins can be a safe, affordable and accessible approach to protecting cognitive health in older adults,” said Dr. Chirag Vyas, a psychiatric epidemiologist at Mass General Brigham in Boston and a lead author of the study, published Thursday in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

But experts not involved in the trial cautioned that the benefits were small, and it was not clear that they would translate to tangible improvements in people’s lives.

“I would put it in the realm of promising, but I wouldn’t go to the bank with it,” said Mary Butler, an associate professor of public health at the University of Minnesota who has published several papers evaluating interventions to prevent dementia.

The research was part of a larger trial involving more than 21,000 older adults looking at whether supplements can protect against several age-related diseases, called the COcoa Supplement and Multivitamin Outcomes Study (COSMOS). The new report included results from a subset of 573 participants — mostly white and relatively well educated — who took several cognitive tests in person.

People in both the multivitamin and placebo groups improved their cognitive scores over two years, possibly because they were already familiar with the tests. But the participants taking the multivitamin showed a slightly greater gain, with the biggest bump coming on memory assessments.

The study also pooled those findings with the results from two prior COSMOS investigations that tested the cognition of more than 5,000 people over the phone or online. Across the three studies, those who took multivitamins had a consistent improvement in their scores on tests of memory and overall cognitive ability compared with people who received a placebo, said Dr. JoAnn Manson, a professor of medicine at Harvard University and the co-principal investigator of the trial.

The researchers estimated that the memory boost observed in people taking the multivitamin corresponded to a two-year reduction in brain aging, meaning that they theoretically tested as well as someone two years younger, Dr. Vyas said.

Experts not involved in the research said that the study was well-designed: It included a large number of participants and used reputable cognitive tests. But the findings “are relatively modest,” said Dr. Hussein Yassine, an associate professor of neurology at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California. While some people may have truly benefited from the multivitamin, he said, a majority most likely did not.

Dr. Yassine added that claiming a multivitamin could slow cognitive aging by two years “is really a stretch.” To arrive at that conclusion, the researchers compared the performance of the multivitamin group with average test scores by age. Dr. Yassine took issue with that technique, calling the interpretation “misleading.”

That calculation was also the primary concern cited by Dr. Pieter Cohen, an internist at Cambridge Health Alliance in Boston who studies supplements. He added that it was unclear whether the subtle improvements measured in people taking multivitamins would be meaningful. It would be far more convincing if the trial found that people who took multivitamins were less likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s by a certain age, or could live independently for longer, he said.

Dr. Manson agreed that more research on multivitamins was needed, especially in groups with more racial, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity. Follow-up studies should analyze who benefited from the supplements and why, Dr. Yassine added. It’s possible, for example, that the gains were driven by people who weren’t previously consuming enough of certain nutrients important for brain health, such as vitamin B12, vitamin D and zinc.

“Instead of concluding that everybody should be taking a multivitamin, I think we should possibly try to understand who benefits from taking the multivitamin,” Dr. Yassine said.

Multivitamins can be useful for certain people, such as those with conditions that affect their ability to absorb nutrients, Dr. Cohen said, but most healthy people don’t need one. “I’m not going to be recommending multivitamins to improve memory based on this data,” he said.

The COSMOS study, funded by the National Institutes of Health and chocolate maker Mars Inc., was originally designed to see whether multivitamins or supplements containing cocoa flavanols would affect heart disease or cancer risk. But the trial found little benefit of either supplement.

Other studies have largely shown that multivitamins didn’t improve cognition or prevent dementia. For example, in a trial of nearly 6,000 male physicians tracked for 12 years, those who took a multivitamin performed no better on cognitive or memory tests than those who took a placebo.

Research has consistently found, however, that a healthy diet and other lifestyle interventions can benefit the brain. Puja Agarwal, a nutritional epidemiologist at the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, called the new findings “encouraging.” But, she added, “if we can meet our nutritional requirements with dietary approaches, that should be the first priority.”

An earlier version of this story incorrectly described the title of Dr. JoAnn Manson. She is co-principal investigator of the COSMOS trial, not co-coordinator.

An earlier version of this story misidentified a substance being studied in the COSMOS trial. They are cocoa flavanols, not flavonols.

Alabama student and amateur golfer Nick Dunlap cannot collect $1.5 million from PGA Tour

take a tour meaning

On Sunday, Jan. 21, 2024, 20-year-old Nick Dunlap won the American Express Tournament at the PGA West golf course in California. Dunlap won the event with a final score of -29 – one stroke better than second-place Christiaan Bezuidenhou t, a South African pro, and two strokes ahead of tour favorites like Xander Schauffele and Justin Thomas .

This was a momentous occasion for Dunlap, who is still a sophomore at the University of Alabama . He even brought some of his homework with him to California while he played in this event. No one ever would have thought someone like him could have beaten out the seasoned PGA Tour veterans in attendance and claim the $1.5 million prize.

Well, he won't be able to.

Despite winning the event, Dunlap's status as an "amateur" golfer prevents him from taking home the prize money from this PGA-sanctioned event.

New era: Tiger Woods leaves 27-year relationship with Nike, thanks founder Phil Knight

Who is Nick Dunlap?

In amateur golf, Dunlap is the man. He's one of only two people ever to win both the US Amateur Championship (2023) and the Junior Amateur Championship (2021). The other person? Tiger Woods .

Dunlap's victory at the American Express Tournament also makes him the first amateur to win a tour event since Phil Mickelson in 1991. Any time a golfer finds themselves listed next to Woods and Mickelson, they are doing something right.

Currently a sophomore at the University of Alabama, Dunlap has a resume longer than most Walgreens receipts, and that's saying something.

In 2023, he qualified for the US Open. In his first full season with Alabama, Dunlap played 37 rounds. He shot even or under par in 26 of them, tied for the second-most in a single season in Alabama history. During the 2023 fall season, every single one of his eight rounds was even or under par.

Essentially, if there's an amateur tournament, Dunlap has probably won it at this point. Regardless, his status as an amateur may not last much longer, especially now that he's realized he's missing out on $1.5 million.

What does this tournament win mean for his amateur status?

With his win in this event, Dunlap can officially turn pro at any point up through to the 2026 season. Should Dunlap decide he wants to finish another year of school or two before joining the PGA Tour, Dunlap would have 30 days after the end of the 2024 season to declare himself a pro for 2025. The same rule applies for the 2026 season.

Regardless of whether or not Dunlap decides to turn pro, Dunlap will still get to chance to compete in the Masters, US Open, and British Open as the US Amateur champion. If Dunlap does decide to go pro, he'll have access to the Masters and US Open as well as seven other signature events on the tour.

Dunlap is a finance major and was a member of the honor roll in 2023. Perhaps he will look to finish his degree before deciding to turn pro. After his win, Dunlap told PGA Tour Radio that he was unsure about his future. "That’s a decision that’s not just about me," said Dunlap. "It affects a lot of people, and obviously, I’m going to try to enjoy this."

Does Dunlap really not get the money?

Unfortunately, Dunlap will not touch the $1.5 million he won at the American Express Tournament. Instead, the prize money went to second-place Christiaan Bezuidenhout. He also does not receive the 500 FedEx Cup points that come with the tournament victory, but that was a given since he isn't even classified as a competitor for that title.

Reactions to Dunlap winning the American Express Tournament

After the tournament, Christiaan Bezuidenhout talked to reporters, referring to Dunlap as "a hell of a player." Bezuidenhout gave Dunlap tons of praise throughout the interview and even acknowledged his desire to play with him again in the near future, "Hopefully, he can be out on the PGA Tour soon, and we all can get to play with him."

Here are some of the other best reactions from Dunlap's win.

What Does the Arrival of 2024 Mean to You?

“2024 is the year! Of course I can’t lie to you, my heart knows what this year means but it also knows how good the journey I’m on has been and how great it still is. It is important to enjoy and be happy during it!

So, 2024 is both the revelation year and also simply another step towards being happy.”

Clarisse Agbegnenou (FRA -63 kg)

Olympic champion and 6 time world champion

“So, what this crazy year, 2024, means to me… As a mother of course it means that my baby Athéna is growing up which is very hard but also very good! It is really funny and weird because I am not counting the time left until this summer’s Olympic Games, I’m not counting these months in sport but the months left before my baby turns 2. There is not long left; I think about her next milestones and achievements.

In one way this is a nice way to be because I don’t feel, for the moment, the stress of this massive event which is coming but at the same time it is scary because both events, the Olympic and my baby’s birthday are coming very fast. As a mother my time and focus is totally different and for the moment, I know it’s the Olympic year, but my baby is the priority.”

"I feel so grateful and happy to be trying to manage both. It’s important to be feeling healthy and happy. Sometimes it is difficult, with hard training and juggling life but I’m still happy and enjoying this ride for the moment, so it’s really cool.

Karen Stevenson (NED +78 kg)

12 time World Judo Tour medallist.

“It means that the decision I made last year to switch from -78 kg to +78 kg turned out well, it’s above all my own expectations, to be honest. I'm still here fighting on the Tour and enjoying our beautiful game!"

"It's the first time I'm really in the race to qualify for the Games and now I understand what all the fuss is about. Colleagues, friends, family and others are asking: how is it going, when do you know if you're going? And of course I want to qualify for Paris this summer but there will be some big tournaments before that, like the Europeans and world championships. Individual medals at those events are goals I still want to achieve too.

Some of those other goals are why I made the choice in the first place; I try to keep that in mind. I have had goals I wanted to achieve, for example, to make my debut at the world championships. Now I've done that but there is always a next step! It will be an exciting and busy few months ahead.

I want to win against all the strongest judoka, demonstrating that work always wins with everything and everyone, and I want to earn everything I deserve."

I don’t only think about the competition but about weight management, selections, training plans, injury management and more. Now is the time for focus.

I am grateful to be able to compete as a representative of Korea for a long time. I will enjoy every day and I am doing my best every moment. I will continue to move forward with my goals in 2024."

An Baul is right that now is the time for focus but also, isn’t it refreshing to know that it is a big factor for the athletes performing on the biggest stages to be able to enjoy the whole process. The destination is one thing but the path to get there is quite another and happiness throughout is clearly key.

  • The Lodge will have a special area dedicated to Nickelodeon, with merchandise giveaways and interactive touchpoints.
  • Fans of shows like Halo , Frasier , and CBS Sports will have in-depth experiences and activities tailored to their favorite series at The Lodge.

Paramount+ is back again with its special The Lodge experience , an immersive collection of activations centered on various television series, movies, and other franchises taking place in scenic locations. This year, the company is bringing The Lodge to six cities across the United States, beginning in early February and ending in July during the next San Diego Comic-Con. The activations will center on titles including Bob Marley: One Love , Lawmen: Bass Reeves , Knuckles , Halo , SpongeBob SquarePants , Mean Girls (2024), Star Trek: Discovery , Survivor , Dora , and Frasier .

Kicking things off next month, The Lodge will have a special oversized area dedicated solely to Nickelodeon , as Paramount+ is the primary streaming home for the network. Officially dubbed the Frosty Zone, the area will feature beloved children's titles, with merch giveaways, interactive touchpoints, photo opportunities, and more. There will be areas dedicated to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles , an opportunity to visit the Krusty Krab, and a slime portal. Right next door, visitors can check out the Paramount Presents theater which will be an homage to classic cinema and filmmaking , designed to celebrate Paramount Pictures' ongoing legacy. It will also showcase a film reel and iconic props.

Along with Nickelodeon and Paramount Presents, visitors will be able to take part in different immersive elements such as sitting in the Captain's Chair for Star Trek: Discovery and playing games for the Sonic spin-off Knuckles and Lawmen: Bass Reeves . The Survivor area invites visitors to head to The Lodge Confessional, a booth that allows them to share their thoughts and strategies, mimicking the one from the series. CBS Ghosts fans can head to the Woodstone Bed & Breakfast for a photo and video opportunity, and they may run into some other "visitors" while there.

'Halo' and 'Frasier' Activations Offer In-Depth Experiences

Halo and Frasier fans will get to dive deeper into the shows at their respective activations. For Halo , The Lodge will feature the Covenant artifact , with visitors given the chance to touch the artifact to see if they are the chosen one. Then, visitors can explore costumes and props from the series, as well as pick up exclusive Halo -branded goggle covers. Frasier fans in Stratton, Vermont, will get to head into Mahoney's Taproom . Upon entering, they will learn they've stepped into Fraiser Crane's mind and can explore Easter eggs, enjoy a book, or play a game of chess.

Lastly, sports fans will get a chance to visit the CBS Sports World at The Paramount+ Pub. While there, they can play a variety of games, including the hook and ring toss, a UEFA Champions League soccer ball-kicking challenge , and more. The area will also showcase locker displays with jerseys, cleats, balls, and other team paraphernalia. All cocktails will be sports-themed.

Please give us a complete sentence and tell us what the context is, i.e. what is the situation you are using your sentence in? Thank you.  

I'm just talking about my experience to a friend In this case, Do I say, I took a tour of Britain or I took the tour of Britain??  

You would normally say, I took a tour of Britain. You would only "take the tour of Britain" if it were a specific tour, e.g. one that everyone traditionally takes and that is generally known, or a tour called "Tour of Britain."
