Despite the fact that Canada is attracting the attention of international students, the world over, there are growing concerns that the country is turning down visa application from applicants because of the provisions of its visa process. In recent times, so many students have been coming to study in the North American country from countries like China and India. Fazley Siddiq, who is a professor at the University of New Brunswick, remarked that students from countries like Pakistan and Nigeria have been having a tough time getting visas. He said the security checks were too rigorous and strict for anyone to pass and that as far as he knew, only a few people got their visas. According to him, universities in Atlantic Canada have been having it very tough since they desperately need international students and for this reason, have been willing to overlook a few rules to attract them. According to Siddiq, Nigerian students have been having it a little less tough lately, but their counterparts from Pakistan have been getting the refusals coming in their numbers. International students have a great impact on Canada's economy Canada's aim of attracting international students is to create diversity in the classroom and maximize the economic opportunities worth billions of dollars that come with it. International students contribute to Canada economy up to a level that challenges the impact made by its export of lumber, aircraft, and auto parts. The High Commission for Pakistan in Ottawa has called the attention of the government to the high rate of visa rejection for students from Asian countries. On the issue of students getting their permits in Canada, Canada's Immigration Minister, Ahmed Hussen, said that visa officers make the decisions on applications. He suggested that in order to help more students studying in the country get their permits, schools need to be connected directly to visa offices and embassies so they could make them understand the criteria of the government. Again, for applicants to get their permits, it is critical that they prove that they are financially stable and can support themselves in the country.
