Engage with members of CICan’s International Advisory Committee (IAC) in a thoughtful conversation on how institutions and regions across Canada are adapting to recent policy changes impacting Canada’s international education sector and what they are doing to ensure that students are properly supported before, during and after their studies with a view to successful labour market participation. Reflect on the changing nature of priorities when it comes to internationalization and how colleges across Canada are adapting their recruitment tactics and international partnership models while also exploring new ways to diversify their international activities and revenue.
