Canada and Mexico have announced their intention to create more opportunities for students to move between the countries, particularly through work-integrated learning experiences, reports Universities Canada. The announcement came after a town hall event in Ottawa this week, in which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto spoke on the economic, social, and career benefits of international study. Universities Canada President Paul Davidson applauded the leaders, noting that “this commitment by the Canadian and Mexican governments will ensure that more students benefit from international experiences which not only help Canadians succeed in the global knowledge economy, but also contribute to building a more innovative, prosperous and inclusive Canada.” Universities Canada | Globe and Mail
