THE Canadian Embassy in the Philippines is organizing the Study in Canada Fair 2014 on October 4 to present 13 Canadian institutions that will discuss opportunities for studying in Canada at the K12, college and university levels.
In a statement on Friday, Canadian Ambassador to Manila Neil Reeder said Canada “has one of the world’s best education systems that provide academic credentials that are recognized globally.”
“International students often become ambassadors of Canada when they go back to their home countries. Some would choose to continue to work in Canada, while others such as our distinguished alumni here have opted to return home with globally-recognized credentials to impart their positive experiences back to the Philippines,” Reeder said.
Interested students and parents are invited to visit the fair for free at Fairmont Hotel Makati on Saturday, October 4, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The 13 participating schools are Algonquin College, Centennial College, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Fulford Academy, Humber College, Langara College, Mount Saint Vincent University, Niagara College Canada, Royal Roads University, SAIT Polytechnic, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science & Technology, Seneca College and TAIE International Institute.
In 2013, over 293,000 international students chose Canada as their study destination.
Canada is among the top three Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development member-countries in terms of investment in public post-secondary and tertiary education.
Recently, it identified the Philippines as a priority emerging market.
