Canada fund for international education

International Edu News

A major investment in international education was included in the Canadian federal budget 2019, targeted at extending support to the new International Education Strategy and outbound mobility. Organisations such as Universities Canada and CI Canada welcomed the investment in outward mobility and promotion. The funding is meant to extend support to work and study opportunities abroad, with the development of an outbound student mobility programme, and to promote Canadian education abroad with a focus on quality. The education strategy underlines the fact that in an increasingly global economy and labour market, Canadian youth need to develop a range of skills. These include adaptability, fluency in multiple languages and inter-cultural skills gained from international experiences such as travelling, studying and working overseas. This is welcome news for the sector, whose associations had advocated for more federal funding for outward student mobility in their submissions to the budget consultation last year.
