Brazilian government expands Canadian colleges' education project for women

March 16, 2011

Canadian college representatives are being honoured this week for their contributions to an education project for Brazilian women. Some dozen Brazilian technological institutes partnered with Niagara College, George Brown College, Collège Montmorency, Red River College, Cégep Régional de Lanaudière, Collège de la Gaspésie et des îles, New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, and Cégep Marie-Victorin to create a process to accept women with limited formal education into vocational programs. Earlier this month, Brazilian representatives travelled to Mozambique to share their experience with government officials and post-secondary educators who are interested in replicating this project in Africa.
