Board of Directors

Strong Governance

BCCIE is overseen by an 11-member Board of Directors who ensure our operations reflect our mandate, direction and the interests of all stakeholders.

Our Board is a reflection of BC’s diverse International Education sector, with representatives from public and private post-secondary universities and colleges, public and private K-12 schools, private English language and career training institutions, and the Ministries of Education, Advanced Education and International Trade.
