Canadian colleges and institutes are internationally recognized as leaders in higher education that is practical and career focused. Every year, they host over 50,000 international students who go on to pursue fulfilling careers, either in Canada or in their home country.
As the voice of Canadian colleges and institutes, CICan works with the federal government to improve policies and create programs that facilitate student mobility and the recruitment of international students. Although the association does not recruit individual students, it contributes to strategic missions around the world to support its members and promote Canada’s college and institute model.
CICan has also been involved in the design of special programs targeting specific countries such as the Canada Express Study Program in Vietnam and the Student Partners Program in India and China.
Student Partners Program
The Student Partners Program (SPP) aims to streamline the study permit application process for international students studying in Canada from India and China. The program is based on the close cooperation between CICan and IRCC.
Vietnam Canada Express Study Program
The Canada Express Study Program (CES) was designed to streamline the study permit application process for Vietnamese students who wish to study in Canada. It is also based on the close cooperation between CICan and IRCC.
