Amidst Canada’s shifting educational landscape, international students are proving indispensable to the nation’s academic future. Canada remains a beacon for students seeking an inclusive, forward-thinking academic experience.


Numbers from Statistics Canada illustrate the nation’s student body for the 2020-2021 academic year, which recorded an impressive total enrolment of 2,107,665, with BHASE (Business, Humanities, Health, Arts, Social Science, and Education) emerging as a popular choice albeit closely followed by STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields.


BHASE had 1,549,791 enrolments, making it a top choice for students. Within BHASE, Business and Administration had 381,468 students, and Arts and Humanities had 319,377. Meanwhile, STEM courses had 557,874 enrolments, with Engineering and Engineering Technology courses getting 188,190.


The global appeal of Canadian institutions is on the rise. Of the 168,921 new faces in the 2020/2021 Career, Technical or Professional Training cohort, international students carved out 80%, dwarfing the 20% domestic representation. From 2013 to 2021, the number of international students in this cohort has skyrocketed from around 80,000 to 135,000.


Turning to graduation, more than half a million (586,053) international students earned their degrees in 2020/2021, becoming part of Canada’s academic legacy. In this area, the scales tilted slightly male, with men accounting for 52.3% versus 47.7% of their female counterparts.
