Increased efforts needed to promote Canadian PSE in India

October 23, 2013

This year’s Canada India Education Council (CIEC) conference resulted in several suggestions and recommendations for strengthening Canada-India relations in PSE. Some of these recommendations included: a strategy for promoting overlooked sectors of education within the Canadian PSE system to international students, such as career colleges, skilled trade, and technical education; a re-energized national strategy for promoting "Brand Canada" overseas, and opportunities for involvement; keeping sight of international students’ needs both before and after they reach Canada; incentives by career colleges for international students to overcome an unfavorable perception created by UK and Australian career colleges; and growing the existing ethical education agents’ and iCARE’s roles through the agent peer-review screening system.
