The Government of Canada has announced a temporary two-year cap on international enrolment, which will decrease the number of approved study permits this coming academic year.

It is important to stress that current students who are currently in Canada are not affected by the announcement. This cap only applies to new study permit applications submitted after Jan 22, 2024. The announcement also includes changes to the post-graduate work permit program (PGWPs). Students currently enrolled in a program at Sheridan will continue to be eligible for a post-graduate work permit.

Sheridan College’s dynamic international students make tremendous contributions in our classrooms, labs, studios and communities across all three campuses and in Fort Erie.   Sheridan will continue to welcome and support you throughout your educational journey and have championed initiatives like the Brampton Charter for Improving the International Student Experience to make a positive difference in the lives of our students.

We understand that the Jan. 22 announcement may be causing uncertainty and anxiety. We’re actively working with the other colleges in Ontario and our provincial and national associations to get greater clarification about these changes. It will take a few days to determine how these changes may affect our Sheridan community so we are asking for your patience. As soon as we have more information, we will share it with you.

If you have specific questions about your study permits or PGWP, please contact askanadvisor@sheridancollege.ca.
