  • International student enrolment on the rise in Ottawa

    Post-secondary institutions in Ottawa are welcoming ever larger numbers of foreign students on campus this fall, as they boost international enrolment to offset a projected drop in Canadian students.

    As of Sept. 19, the University of Ottawa had 1,350 new international students registered, its largest number so far. In a statement, acting manager of media relations NĂ©omie Duval credited the rise to the university's recruitment efforts and a discount it offers to French-speaking international students.

    "As many other universities in Canada, uOttawa focuses on international recruitment to outweigh a decrease in student population, especially in Ontario," Duval wrote.
