Mr. Speaker, that again is another example of our collaboration as we have been going back and forth on the issue of international students.
One of the things we made sure of when we created the CERB was that the criteria would include the requirement that someone had to be resident in Canada, so international students as well as temporary foreign workers could apply. When we embarked upon our process of thinking of how we could support students, we looked at our existing student policy, which focuses on Canadian citizens and permanent residents. Mirroring our existing policy around Canada student loans and Canada summer jobs, the current Canada student benefit is focused on Canadian citizens and residents of Canada.
What we have done for international students is to relax the restriction on the number of hours they can work, which is particularly important for international students studying in medical fields right now.
