Our International Strategy for 2022-2025

As Canadian colleges and institutes emerge from the global pandemic, we have a brand-new vision for its approach to international education and development. Our new three-year International Strategy works to futureproof the Canadian college and institute network through internationalization and global engagement.

Developed following extensive consultation with both member institutions and partners from outside the college and institute sector, the new International Strategy officially began implementation in April and complements our existing 2019-2024 Strategic Plan: Strengthening the System.

The strategy will support our members as they pursue new opportunities in international education across three pillars: futureproofing Canada; bringing the world to Canada; taking Canada to the world.

It will enhance outbound student mobility and help Canadian students develop highly sought-after global skills, diversify student recruitment, build the capacity of members to implement their internationalization strategies, and strengthen international cooperation with new models for business development.
