Keystone School takes pride in its diverse community, welcoming Canadian and international students from over 20 countries. However, recent changes in Canadian immigration policy have prompted concerns among our international student body, most likely due to a misunderstanding that these very students would be eligible for an exemption from the new Canadian immigration rules.

The announcement by The Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, revealed the government’s decision to implement a cap on international student permit applications for a two-year period. This measure aims to stabilize new growth, with an expected approval of approximately 360,000 study permits for 2024, marking a significant 35% decrease from the previous year.

We want to emphasize that Keystone School remains exempt from these regulations, and our students would receive an exemption from these new Canadian immigration rules. As a secondary school, our students are not subject to the new intake cap. This means that our international students can continue to obtain visas to study in Canada without any disruption or reduction in the number of permits issued.

We understand the importance of clarity and assurance during these uncertain times. Keystone School is committed to providing an exceptional educational experience for all students, including our international cohort. Rest assured, our admissions process remains unaffected by these changes, and we look forward to welcoming students from around the world to join our diverse and thriving community.

For further information or assistance regarding international student admissions at Keystone School, please feel free to contact our admissions office.

We are here to support you every step of the way on your educational journey in Canada.
