Why is it important to attract international students to Ontario universities?

International students contribute significantly to excellence in education and research, bringing a diversity of perspectives, experiences and languages that enhance the university experience for all students.

International students bring a significant economic boost to the province, contributing just less than $3 billion annually to Ontario’s economy. According to a 2012 federal government report, international students pursuing their education in Canada generate 81,000 jobs and more than $445 million in government revenue.
