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

Please join the Trade Commissioner from the Canadian Embassy in Seoul responsible for international education, to learn about contemporary market intelligence, key data, trends, developments, opportunities, and analysis on the issues currently impacting the Korean education sector. Our presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
