Education

International education contributes to Canadian and global prosperity by increasing the quality of human capital through training and collaboration. For Canadians, it generates jobs and income by selling education services in Canada and abroad, by attracting and developing human capital, by filling skills gaps, and by increasing innovation. It includes recruiting international students to study in Canada or to study a Canadian program from abroad, attracting researchers to conduct research in Canada or in collaboration with Canadian researchers and has an impact right across the country. The education sector in Canada comprises more than 1400 post-secondary institutions and 372 school districts.
