Canadian College Athletic Association set to widen import quota | Toronto Star
Colleges across Canada recruit international students to fill classroom seats, add diversity to campuses and, helpfully, pay a lot more tuition.
But, as Demetrius Ferguson discovered when he left the Bahamas to study marketing at Holland College in P.E.I., international students are not as welcome when it comes to playing on varsity sports teams.
The ‘One-in-Six’ rule means that, no matter how good they are, only two international students can play on a college varsity basketball or volleyball team and three on a soccer team. The rest of the spots are guaranteed to Canadian athletes.
