Preliminary results from the research project titled, Immigration, Education and Employment Pathways of Rural and Urban International Students in BC: What is Going On?
The project is led by researchers at Langara College in Vancouver and the College of New Caledonia (CNC) in Prince George, along with community partners, Prince George Immigrant and Multicultural Service Society (IMSS), and South Vancouver Neighbourhood House (SVNH). Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is also a partner on the project.
Data collection consists of a survey of current and former international students at postsecondary institutions in Prince George and Vancouver, followed by interviews and focus groups with international students and professional stakeholders who work with IS in various capacities in fall 2021. The survey portion is now complete, with nearly 1,300 international students providing information on their experiences related to education, employment, housing, immigration and personal wellbeing
