BCCIE works in partnership with the government and the sector to develop international mission trips under the StudyinBC brand. These missions build on recruitment and engagement efforts in various overseas markets, such as China, Japan, South Korea, India, and Brazil. Each year, international education practitioners in the K-12, Post-secondary, and Language sectors take part in missions to help position our province – and their institution – as a world-class learning environment.

Our efforts align with the Canadian Embassy Fairs. We create BC Zones at the Fairs, as well as offering further BC value-added engagement activities through seminars, roundtables, agent training, one-on-one meetings, school visits, agent mini fairs, education MOU signing ceremonies, Friends of BC Receptions, and alumni networking. All these approaches help to maximize BC stakeholders’ expectations and achievements during the trips and build up new relationships and networks in the markets. Numerous leads for potential partnership and cooperation can be generated at our events to be further pursued and developed post-event.
