To thrive in the global economy of today, young Canadians need to demonstrate adaptability, resilience and ability to work with people of various backgrounds. When we encourage young Canadians to study abroad and that we attract foreign students to Canada, we favour the creation of important links, and create quality jobs. In concert with the provinces and territories, the government of Canada plays a key role in helping to shape the education system of Canada’s world-class.

Today, the government of Canada has launched a new strategy in the field of international education. This strategy will give the opportunity to a greater number of young Canadians to study abroad and to acquire the skills necessary to be competitive on the world markets, while promoting Canada as a country of high caliber for the studies, research and work.

The minister of the Diversification of international trade, the honourable Jim Carr, has represented the government of Canada at an event held in Edmonton, Alberta, that brought together students, teachers, educators and other key partners in the field of education. He made this announcement in partnership with the minister of Employment, the Development of the workforce and Labour, the honourable Patty Hajdu, and the minister of Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship, the honourable Ahmed Hussen. The strategy has been designed in collaboration with the provinces and territories, as well as partners in education critical across the country, including associations of the education sector.

The strategy proposes a pilot project of the program of mobility to the stranger who will offer to an increasing number of canadian post-secondary students the opportunity to study and work abroad, especially for students who are less likely to have the opportunity.

These opportunities will allow students to acquire the skills and create the necessary networks to help Canada to be competitive on the world markets. The pilot project will be offered by Colleges and institutes Canada and Universities in Canada. Almost 11,000 canadian students will benefit from the pilot project over a period of five years.

Thanks to the new strategy, here’s how the international education sector to reach its full potential and create new jobs for Canadians all across the country :

by encouraging more young Canadians to study and work abroad so that they can then use these skills to ensure the growth of canadian businesses
by diversifying the learning environment in Canada by attracting students from a larger number of countries
by increasing exports of products and services canadian education
