Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) Manila’s annual EduCanada Fairs gained recognition and established the EduCanada brand in the Philippines in recent years. Local students and education stakeholders trust the EduCanada brand and appreciate the opportunity to meet quality Canadian institutions and learn about study permit processes from Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). TCS Manila is organizing its third virtual exhibit with the following activities to help Canadian institutions recruit quality students, and obtain market intelligence from TCS Manila and key stakeholders. 

Pre-Event

  • EduCanada Study Permit and Pre-Arrival Webinar and B2Bs with Education Agencies: September 16, 2021 evening Canada/September 17, 2021 morning Manila

Open to all Canadian institutions, guidance counsellors and education agencies, this event will provide an opportunity for IRCC and Canada Border Services Agency to deliver presentations on the Canadian study permit processes in the Philippines and a presentation on requirements for international students prior to entry into Canada. After the webinar, TCS Manila will facilitate pre-arranged business meetings between participating Canadian institutions and education agencies in the market.

  • One-on-One Meetings with Trade Commissioner for Education

From October 18 to 22 (Manila), the Trade Commissioner for Education will meet individually with Canadian institutions upon request. These meetings will help TCS Manila provide relevant market intelligence to Canadian institutions and gain a better understanding of the needs and challenges of Canadian institutions.
