The Government of Saskatchewan has announced a new global engagement strategy that will encourage the growth of the international student population over the next five years. The strategy’s key components include fostering new international partnerships, developing a new International Education Practitioner Program, and increasing targeted recruitment in French language markets. “The strategy developed in partnership with the post-secondary sector will assist institutions to attract international students in innovative ways, while meeting commitments outlined in Saskatchewan's Growth Plan,” said SK Advanced Education Minister Gene Makowsky. “International education is a major contributor to the Saskatchewan economy and this strategy will help position the province as a destination of choice for international students.” SK (SK)
