Supported by the BC Government and the BC Trade and Investment Office in Beijing, BCCIE jointly organized BC Offshore School Mini Fairs in Shandong, China from October 23–26, 2017, which occurred on the periphery of the China Education Expo and Team BC China Mission.
10 BC post-secondary institutions participated in the fairs in five cities in Shandong Province, including Zibo, Qingdao, Tai'an, Weifang and Yantai. The delegation met with school administrators, councilors, over 300 Grade 10–12 students, and over 100 parents. The objectives of the mini-fairs are to advance BC's post-secondary recruitment efforts in the Chinese market and facilitate a smooth transition for Chinese graduates from BC offshore schools to post-secondary institutions in BC.
