School administrators will never admit to their dirty little secret: That Canada’s universities and colleges have no problem displacing Canadian applicants with foreigners.

Do you have a son or daughter that was refused entry into a school of higher education? The likely reason is not that they were lacking intellect, skills or ambition, but rather that our government is pushing hard for schools to accept foreign students at an an ever increasing rate.

Isn’t it time to expose this treason  and start putting Canadian students first?

Canadian Students First Policy

The administrators who run our schools encourage displacing your children because it generally means more revenue for them.  After all, foreign students pay tens of thousands of dollars per year for their tuition (though they are still a net cost to taxpayers).  Administrators also enjoy a large percentage of foreign students in their schools because it means more prestige and international travel for them and the teachers.

According to Universities Canada, in 2014, there were 89,000 foreigners enrolled in undergraduate programs in Canada, and 44,000 foreigners in graduate programs (almost 28% of all graduate students).  That is a total of 133,000 foreign students in Canada.  And that was four years ago!

To add insult to injury, it is common for many thousands of foreign students to be given large monetary gifts to help defray their tuition and living costs − money that could have gone towards your child’s education.  Paid for by you, the taxpayer, of course.

It is time to cancel the Foreign Student Visa Program to ensure that Canadian students are put first.

It is not only Canadian students who are at a disadvantage with our current system.  Canadian university and college teachers must also compete with an influx of foreign ones.  Therefore, in order to put Canadians first, it is necessary to restrict the number of visas given to foreign teachers as follows:

  • A foreign teacher qualifies for a visa only when a suitable Canadian teacher cannot be found after an exhaustive, nation-wide search, and only when a Canadian teacher cannot be found even after potential training and education for the position.
  • The foreign teacher is proficient in English or French, both written and oral.
  • The visa is valid for a limited period of time to give the school time to find a Canadian replacement.

In this way, Canadian teachers and students are put first.
