Pathways to Prosperity and ICA-Victoria Workshop on International Students as Future Permanent Residents
Delta Hotels Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort, 100 Harbour Rd, Victoria, BC.
Interest in international students in Canada has never been greater. Various levels of government, the business sector, the settlement sector, Local Immigration Partnerships and Réseaux en immigration francophone have begun to recognize the impact and potential value that international students represent to Canadian society. However, Canada is not alone in its growing desire to attract and retain foreign students. Global competition for international students is on the rise. As such, this full-day workshop will examine factors that impact the attraction and retention of international students in Canada, including motivations for studying and remaining in Canada, services and supports for international students, strategies for attracting and retaining international students where they are most needed, and how stakeholders can facilitate the transition from international student to permanent resident.
We welcome LIP and RIF representatives, service providers, government officials, researchers, graduate students, international student centre coordinators, and all other stakeholders to participate.
