Canada continues to be recognized in Japan as an excellent destination for study, research and academic collaboration. In addition to our quality of education, Japanese students are attracted to our standard of living and quality of life, secure cities, and work opportunities in the province. Japan remains one of the top source markets for international students to Canada and BC.

Please join the officers from the Embassy of Canada to Japan responsible for international education and migration, to learn about contemporary market intelligence, visa processing updates, key data, trends, developments, opportunities, and analysis on the issues currently impacting the Japanese education sector. Our presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
