Quebec is increasing university tuition for international students to at least $20,000 a year to preserve the French language. This decision has sparked opposition as it could lead to a labor shortage. Foreign workers, including students, play an important role in addressing the labor shortage. The federal government even waived work restrictions for international students due to their importance in the labor force. However, Quebec’s new policy could scare off some international students, leading to potential immigration issues. Moreover, the tuition hike could affect anglophone universities in Quebec, making it harder for them to attract the best students. So, the decision to hike tuition fees could have a negative impact on the labor force and immigration in Quebec.
