Canadian Press: Cap on international students' working hours should be lifted permanently: advocates

NDP immigration critic Jenny Kwan is also pushing for a more permanent change. “This change is absolutely necessary, and is necessary for the students’ survival,” Kwan said in an interview.

International students face tuition fees that are as much as three times those of domestic students and must still support themselves while they’re studying.
Kwan said she welcomed the news about the pilot, but worried about the motivations behind it.  When the government changes immigration measures, Kwan said, “it’s never really to support the people who need the changes, but rather, it’s always driven by the economy, or by industry.”
