In 2009, the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC), with the support of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), launched the first national survey on international education and mobility at Canadian colleges. This will act as a baseline study, allowing for more accurate assessment of changes in the degree of internationalization in the coming years. Individual colleges will also be able to use the data as a benchmark on how they are doing in comparison to their peers, and to inform the development and implementation of their internationalization policies. It is also meant to encourage the exchange of innovative and successful practices amongst ACCC member institutions.
