Increasing Outbound Student Mobility for Canadian students

On August 22, 2019, the Government of Canada launched its new International Education strategy, which had first been announced in Budget 2019. We were incredibly proud to be entrusted with the administration of the new Outbound Student Mobility Pilot, a key component of the Strategy, in collaboration with Universities Canada. The pilot represents an investment of $95 million over five years and should help up to 11,000 post-secondary students gain international experience.

Unfortunately, the beginning of the pilot had to be postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closing of borders, but it remains a priority for both organizations.
