Canada's International Education Strategy

Harnessing our knowledge advantage to drive innovation and prosperity

International education is at the very heart of our current and future prosperity.

Canada’s International Education Strategy, a key element of the Global Markets Action Plan, is our blueprint to attract talent and prepare our country for the 21st century. With the support of all the players in the research and education fields—provinces and territories, educational institutions, non-governmental organizations, the private sector—we can make Canada a world leader in international education and ensure our future prosperity.
