Canada: New Policy To Boost Saskatchewan Education Industry, Will Attract International Students

The Saskatchewan government has unveiled a new education program to raise the province’s profile in worldwide markets in order to attract international students.

As per a press release from the Saskatchewan province, the International Education Strategy will support the growth of international students by conducting recruitment operations, encouraging education and research prospects both at home and abroad, developing a new International Education Practitioner Program, and assisting in the expansion of French post-secondary programs.

“The strategy developed in partnership with the post-secondary sector will assist institutions to attract international students in innovative ways while meeting commitments outlined in Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan,” said Gene Makowsky, Advanced Education Minister. “International education is a major contributor to the Saskatchewan economy and this strategy will help position the province as a destination of choice for international students.”

The proposed program will be supported by Saskatchewan’s eight international trade and investment offices, according to the Ministry of Trade and Export Development.

Slated to debut next year, the Saskatchewan Student Ambassador Program will improve students’ study abroad experiences. Potential international students will be able to participate in a ‘Discover Saskatchewan’ program.
