BCCIE is mandated to promote international education in and for the Province of BC, to work to enhance the Province’s international reputation for education, and to support the international education activities of the provincial government. One way to achieve this mandate is to enter into Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with other national and sub-national organizations, in Canada and internationally, that share an interest in strengthening international education activities and initiatives between respective jurisdictions.

We invite BC schools and institutions to fully utilize these MOUs as platforms for existing or enhanced activity or as a gateway to the development of new initiatives, activities and partnerships.
