The Canadian government and postsecondary institutions across the country are altering their strategies for international student recruitment in order to emphasize diversification. The federal government’s previous five-year international education strategy, which endeavoured to attract 450,000 international students by 2022, was quickly surpassed in 2018, prompting the government to shift its focus from growth to: expanding study abroad programs for Canadian undergraduates, diversifying where overseas students come from and where they study in Canada, and supporting Canadian institutions in forming partnerships with their counterparts in other countries. “The more diverse the campus, the richer the learning environment,” says President of the Canadian Bureau for International Education Larissa Bezo.
