BCCIE Memoranda of Understanding

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 Memoranda 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.

BCCIE’s MOUs vary in terms of partner, location, and sector but in all cases are designed to assist BC schools and institutions to further their respective goals in international education. 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. Such relationships gain in utility when the sector is aware of their existence and uses them effectively.

Should you have any questions about the details of the MOUs or would like more information please contact bccie@bccie.bc.ca.
