What's behind the problems with Canada's international student program?

Colleges and universities in Canada are making billions from international students, but many of those students have spoken out about living under precarious conditions.

 

Finding a suitable place to live in Canada is one of the major challenges immigrants face, especially those without access to work visas or residency cards. Rental properties are in high demand across Canada, yet there are few sites where persons without Canadian citizenship or work permits may get them.
