Canada: Your partner in education

Canada’s academic community is highly regarded for expertise and shared collaboration. Institutions are partnered world wide on initiatives of research excellence, student exchange, scholarship administration and education consulting.  As education falls under the jurisdiction of Canada’s provinces and territories you may find that collaboration will occur on a provincial or territorial level, through the appropriate education association or perhaps with an individual institution.

Become a partner

  1. Identify where your project fits within Canada’s education structure by reviewing our links to Canada’s Council of Ministers of Education (CMEC) as well as our list of associations representing Canada’s sectors.
  2. Develop your proposal in consultation with a Canadian Education Officer at one of the Canadian Government Offices Abroad.
