As you can see, the numbers of study permit holders continue to be dominated by Indian and Chinese citizens. However, the number of Korean, French and Vietnamese people with study permits is decreasing.

Meanwhile, also in 2021, Chinese citizens represent the second-highest number of people who have been granted permanent resident status in Canada. Also, in the same year, Filipinos represent the third-highest number of new immigrants to Canada. These three countries have remained in the top three places in recent years.
