Eastern Europe continues to grow in importance for the Canadian international education sector. Two countries, the Czech Republic and Ukraine, present excellent opportunities for potential international students coming to K-12, post-secondary, and the language sectors.

Canada and the Czech Republic have longstanding and close ties that date back to 1948, with these ties renewed and strengthened in 19891. Canada’s and Ukraine’s partnership also rely on special historical and cultural ties, enriched and fostered by the community in Canada of 1.4 million Canadians of Ukrainian heritage. As an emerging market, the Czech Republic provides opportunities for development and diversification, while Ukraine is Canada’s fourth source market of international students in Europe2.

Please join the trade commissioners from the Embassy of Canada to the Czech Republic and Ukraine responsible for international education, to learn about contemporary market intelligence, key data, trends, developments, opportunities, and analysis on the issues currently impacting the Czech Republic’s and Ukraine’s education sectors. Our presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
