Canada has emerged as the new foreign education destination with Canadian institutions actively engaged around the world as leaders and partners in research, education consulting, administration, student exchange, language or vocational training, and academic-industry collaboration.
According to a new index devised by ‘The Economist – Intelligence Unit’, Canada’s city of Montreal tops the list of the world’s leading universities like Oxford and Cambridge, UK or Boston, US. This is partly due to the quality of its educational experience. But like many of the Canadian cities in the ranking that benefit from Canada’s welcoming
immigration policies, Montreal also scores well on its ability to offer students a rich post-graduate work experience.
Due to its education friendly policies, many students have started opting for Canadian universities and, while considering this demand, this initiative has been taken to setup an ideal representation of Canadian universities to interact Pakistani young minds face to face.
The event, is scheduled at a strategic time, which coincides with the admission drive in education institutes and will be attracting students from various academia, seeking information, coordination and enrolment details from Canadian universities.
