Shifting our student mobility program

Planned to launch in the Fall of 2020, our new student mobility program offered as part of Canada’s International Education Strategy had to be delayed because of the pandemic. Instead of waiting for the boarders to reopen, we launched a call for proposals to member institutions in October for innovative outbound student mobility projects. This upfront investment allowed member institutions to test different tools, supports and services to build inclusive study/work abroad opportunities, adjust programming to a COVID-19 environment, and served as a stepping-stone for the full implementation of the program, which will begin in the coming months.
