Harry Coor shines a light on a neglected form of migration, foreign students. There are a half a million foreign students in Canada and surveys indicate that half plan to apply for citizenship. They pay about 5 times the tuition of locals so schools have huge incentive to accept them whether or not they are qualified. After graduation, their employment prospects are often disappointing.
The foreign student route is a backdoor which the bankers use to change the demographic character of Canada.

If native Canadians thought the immigration problem couldn’t get any worse, there’s a new trend in Canada’s education system to worry about.
Foreign students have become the cash cows of our colleges, universities and training centres. Coming mainly from places such as Vietnam, India, Bangladesh, China, these mostly young people are told that America is the “land of milk and honey” (Video1, Video2, Video3).
When they arrive and finish their programs, the reality is often very different, especially if they try to obtain work permits or jobs. Many students are denied work permits after graduation return home, go to another country, or sadly, end their lives. If they decide to stay in Canada, they often find their employment dreams are quickly extinguished.
Foreign student enrolment increased by 88% in 2017, while domestic growth was a paltry 7%. Canada was one of the top destinations for foreign students. There are approximately 494,000 international students here and increasing.
Often described as “cash cows“ by the top brass of the education industry, these students are lured from their largely destitute home countries, with lofty promises of a job in Canada. They often rent rooms in places like Windsor, Ontario, where the cost of living is the cheapest. Indeed, Windsor’s colleges, universities, training centres, immigration and city officials, have been welcoming these “cash cows” with open arms. Foreign students often pay 4 to 7 times more tuition than domestic students.
Canadian institutions have established recruitment offices in places like India. Educational officials claim Canadians simply aren’t producing enough children to fill the seats. They are partially right, but native-born citizens are not having children because of the increasing cost of living and competition for available jobs.
Students often share rooms and live as frugally as possible, often in slum-like conditions by absentee landlords.
