CBIE outlines priorities for 2011 federal budget

September 10, 2010

In its pre-budget submission, the Canadian Bureau for International Education recommends the federal government invest at least $22 million a year over the next 5 years to promote Canada as a study destination and to attract fee-paying students from around the world. The organization also recommends the government continue to increase its investment in post-secondary scholarships for foreign students, especially those from developing countries. CBIE suggests Ottawa should invest in a major study/work abroad program providing top-up grants or airfare support to students participating in their home institutions' programs, as well as expand HRSDC's International Academic Mobility program.
