Courts and Tribunals
Department of Justice Canada
Votes: 298
If we review the annual reports of many courts and tribunals, they do provide basic data such as: number of claims, success rates by party, etc. Such tribunals should also be required to report on wait times and costs and cost awards. Monetary awards would also be helpful for anyone attempting to analyze such data.

This dataset would expand on the existing “Study permit holders by Province/Territory and Citizenship, as of December 31st” dataset by further separating students by level of study. At a minimum, the level of study would have 2 categories: “Primary & Secondary” (i.e. K-12) and “Post-Secondary Studies” (i.e. CEGEP, college, university, institute and ESL/FSL). Ideally the level of study would be separated into more categories such as: “Primary & Secondary”, “CEGEP”, “College”, “University” and “ESL/FSL” or even all of the levels of study listed on the study permit application. With 3 distinct sectors (K-12, PSE, Languages) active in recruiting international students to Canada, a more detailed breakdown of international students would assist in recruitment and marketing efforts, such as more targeted approaches, for each of the respective sectors.
