Building on Success: Canada's International Education Strategy (2019-2024)

August 23, 2019 – The Minister of International Trade Diversification, the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, and the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship launched a new International Education Strategy designed to maintain and enhance Canada’s standing as a high-calibre place to study, do research and work.

Canada’s new Strategy has three key objectives:

  • Encourage Canadian students to gain new skills through study and work abroad opportunities in key global markets, especially Asia;
  • Diversify the countries from which international students come to Canada, as well as their fields, levels of study, and location of study within Canada; and
  • Increase support for Canadian education sector institutions to help grow their export services and explore new opportunities abroad.
