Canada is sought-after study destination in the world
More and more international students choose to study in Canada for many good reasons. Canada has world-class universities, colleges and specialized training schools offering top-class education and training that can lead to career success. Canada is a leader in technology, business and arts, and consistently the top choice of place to live, work and do business in the world.
Employment & Immigration Prospects
International students in Canada can work in a job on campus and get a work permit after graduation. Many qualified students also find permanent jobs and may apply to become a permanent resident.
Innovation and Research Hubs
Canada is at the forefront of scientific and creative innovation. One of the best R&D tax credit system in the world attracts global companies to conduct R&D in Canada and Canada has renowned research institutes, AI labs, venture incubators and accelerators. These institutions, labs and accelerators offer opportunities for students to work with top researchers and apply what they are learning in the classroom in the lab or workshop.
Forging a New Educational Path for Tomorrow’s Success
Everywhere we turn in today’s society, technology is changing how we work, play, and communicate. A limitless amount of information is at our fingertips, and the use of data allows us to personalize what we watch, how we shop, and where we eat.
Virtually almost every product experience a person has is personalized today. Yet, higher education lags far behind the technology curve, leading to greater spending, bigger buildings, and higher tuitions within the historic model of education first established centuries ago.
We believe a digital-first, 21st-century mindset must prevail in higher education to ensure the skills attained are relevant to today’s and tomorrow’s jobs.
There are millions of jobs in NorthAmerica that are vacant because there is a shortage of qualified workers. Today, there are millions of “middle skills” jobs that require skills beyond a high school degree, but not a four-year university degree. The cost to attend a university has increased multiple times faster than wages.
Given the evolution of technology, there is simply no reason why the educational experience cannot be one that is practical, focused, delivers real value, and moves at life’s speed. For learners, this means education comes to them, not the other way around. And the curriculum responds to the needs of each unique student, rather than generalized, standardized, chronic approaches designed for the past — failing to position individuals for tomorrow’s success.
This mindset shift will mean the employer will receive graduates that benefited from a clear educational pathway that is focused on the skills and training needed, not an arbitrary amount of time in a classroom with blurry educational workforce-related outcomes. This will allow job seekers to move from application to employment in record time.
