CICan, Universities Canada to pilot study abroad initiative

August 26, 2019

The federal government has earmarked $147.9M for a global mobility program that will provide international experience and skills-training to 11,000 students. Within this program, Colleges and Institutes Canada and Universities Canada will administer the Outbound Student Mobility Pilot, a $95M initiative that seeks to boost participation rates for underrepresented students, diversify international opportunities, and reduce barriers to working and studying abroad. “The new Outbound Student Mobility Pilot is significant news for young Canadians, and for Canada. Canada’s universities look forward to working with our partners in government and the higher education sector to enable more students, from all backgrounds, to participate in global mobility experiences,” said Paul Davidson, President of Universities Canada.
