Hundreds of international students, primarily from India, are facing deportation from Canada due to recent changes in immigration rules. The situation has sparked protests and outrage, with students fighting for their right to stay in the country.

The crisis centers around Prince Edward Island (PEI), a province that has seen a significant influx of international students in recent years. However, recent adjustments to the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) have left many students in a precarious position. The PNP allows provinces to nominate immigrants who possess skills that address local labor shortages.

The changes to the PEI PNP prioritize occupations in healthcare and construction, reflecting strains on the province’s healthcare system and housing market. However, this shift has significantly impacted students who were previously counting on PNP nominations as part of their immigration pathway. Many of these students may now be ineligible to remain in Canada after completing their studies.

The affected students, who began protesting on May 9th, describe their situation as “Now or Never.” They are demanding fair treatment from Canadian immigration authorities and a chance to stay in Canada. The protests are expected to culminate in an assembly meeting on May 23rd at 175 Richmond Street in Charlottetown, where students will discuss their demands and strategize their next steps.
