Canada Day International is pleased to announce that the Canadian High Commission has invited some of the top Canadian educational institutions including; Royal Roads University, University of Calgary, University of Toronto, Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, York University, Brock University, Ivey Business School, McGill University, Memorial University, University of New Brunswick, Cape Breton University and Dalhousie University to take part in the four day event coinciding with Canada Day in London. Targeted at informing undergraduates about educational opportunities in Canada, visitors will learn about the study options available to them through informative seminars and networking receptions during the course of the four day event.

Canada is internationally recognised for a competency-based teaching approach that prepares students to be productive in the workplace immediately after graduation. Canadian Universities are knowledge hubs connecting business, government and universities with commercial firms that help deliver on discovery. Imagine studying in Canada, visualize the vibrant cities, beautiful spaces and welcoming multi-cultural communities, in a country that provides exceptional standards of living, safety and healthcare. Canada has the highest percentage of individuals 25-64 year-olds (51%) achieving at least college or university education, among OECD member countries. According to the OECD, Canada invests the third-highest amount per tertiary student among OECD countries every year. Canadian Universities welcome students from around the world each year, with approximately 7.5 percent of students at Canada’s postsecondary education institutions being international students.

The events kick off on June 27th and will be held at Canada House on Trafalgar Square and admission is free. The events run as follows:
