In the space of just two months, the international education industry has had to face up to a considerable threat brought about by this global pandemic. This all comes on the heels of a remarkable performance by Canada as the world’s fastest-growing study destination over the last several years. As we all do our part to flatten the curve of coronavirus, education providers and agents everywhere are now tackling immense challenges which a short time ago were simply unthinkable. What do schools and agencies need to know now? And how can they adapt to the new reality? While the response to the crisis continues to evolve across all levels of government, this webinar, presented by ICEF, offers an in-depth look at the immediate impacts of coronavirus on Canada and what institutions, associations and government are doing to support their education agent partners during this time.
While we welcome all educators to participate, this webinar is geared towards education agents interested in Canada as a study destination.
ICEF will facilitate in an online panel discussion with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), alongside three Canadian associations: Canadian Associations of Public Schools – International (CAPS-I), Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICAN) and Languages Canada, to discuss the current situation and how Canada is handling COVID-19.
