The report said that international students are now looking at Canadian universities because of the country's liberal, migrant-friendly image serving as an important attraction.

Ted Sargent, Vice President (international) of the University of Toronto, said in addition to offering top-tier universities, Canada is sending a "message about being open to the world" in the light to the contemporary political climate in the US and UK.

"Events in the US and the UK have reverberated around the world. It makes people go back and think again."
