An International Recruitment Mission in France for French-language Postsecondary Education in Ontario: January 28th to the 30th
The group’s mission will come to a close in Paris with the Salon de l’étudiant de Paris, on January 28th and 29th, and an information session at the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris, on January 30th.
France represents an important market for Canadian postsecondary institutions, such as universities, university colleges, community colleges and ESL schools. French students are very interested in Canada, which they ranked as the 5th most popular country for international studies. Quebec is the main destination for French students because of the common language, as well as the historic and cultural ties that bind this province and France. Read more…
Starting January 23rd, residents of Ottawa and Eastern Ontario will have the opportunity to discover the eight institutions that form the French-language Education (FLE) network in Ontario, collectively offering programs and services of enviable quality, from childhood to adulthood.
The campaign will highlight the many advantages for children who attend French-language schools and young people who pursue postsecondary studies or training in French. To give you an idea of the merits of FLE, click here. This site refers to the great performance of our students in provincial tests.
An International Recruitment Mission in Cameroon for French-language Postsecondary Education in Ontario: January 19th to the 21st
Cameroon, a bilingual country like Canada, will be hosting the Education in Canada Fair for the second time in a row, where both Francophone and Anglophone institutions are invited. This country has enormous potential for international student recruitment, partnerships between Canadian and local institutions and consulting services in the education sector. Sound postsecondary professional training in areas such as building construction, ICT, motor mechanics, mining, and many more, are almost non-existent in the country. Canada’s expertise in these sectors is welcomed.
I would like to share a few photos from the Salon de l’Éducation au Canada that took place in Mali on January 16th and 17th 2012. (The report from our representative at the Salon, Raymond Day can be read on our French blog.)
The group of representatives will be in Cameroon from the 19th to the 21st of January.
We wish them well,
An International Recruitment Mission in Mali for French-language Postsecondary Education in Ontario: January 16th and 17th
This country has also experienced a significant increase in the number of private schools, and a growing number of students are “emigrating” to French-language and North American schools, including Canadian universities. The last two Education in Canada Fairs have been held in Bamako (in 2010 and 2011), allowing us to measure the level of interest of Malian students and parents in studies abroad. More and more Canadian universities are expressing a real interest in Mali; we believe it is important to support their efforts to promote their programs, in order to develop opportunities to recruit students and forge partnerships with local institutions.
These are the latest photos from the recruitment mission from our representatives from the French-language postsecondary institutions in Dakar, Sénégal. The representatives from Université de Hearst and the Campus d’Alfred-Université de Guelph have now joined the group. We will hear from them in a few days when they are in Mali.
So far the Salon de l’éducation au Canada has had a very busy schedule and it has been a huge success.
Have a good trip,
