The Canadian Bureau for International Education is calling on the Federal Government to invest $10M to support outward student mobility, reports The Pie News. A “very limited” number of Canadian students currently take part in international education experiences, and the proposal aims to ultimately see a quarter of all Canadian students embark on government-supported study abroad by 2028. “We recommend that the government initially invest $10 million in a five-year program allowing Canadian high school, college and university students to take advantage of international learning programs,” said CBIE Interim President Larissa Bezo. “Most educational institutions offer learning abroad opportunities, but the overall uptake is low.”
