CICan signs MOU with IndiaColleges and Institutes Canada (CICan), along with 10 of its members, signed memorandums of understandings (MOUs) last week with India’s National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC). Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Prime Minister Narendra Modi endorsed these partnerships during the first state visit to Canada from an Indian prime minster in over 40 years. The MOU between CICan and the NSDC will facilitate multiple sector collaborations for capacity development and the establishment of National Occupation Standards (NOSs). As India embarks on an ambitious education reform, this new framework for collaboration will pave the way for initiatives in a variety of sectors such as curriculum development, teaching and learning resources development, occupational standards, testing and certification and labour market information system.
