International Education

International education contributes to Canadian prosperity by:

  • attracting talent
  • boosting Canada’s innovation capacity
  • promoting global ties
  • fostering a vibrant Canadian economy

The sector is comprised of universities, colleges, institutes, cégeps, K-12 schools, language schools and private career colleges. It promotes the exports of educational services, such as the recruitment of international students, the sale/licensing of Canadian curriculum and corporate and skills training.
