Five national associations renew their collective commitment to international education

Signalling their ongoing commitment to collaborative work in international education, five key national associations have renewed their cooperation with a memorandum of understanding.

The Canadian Consortium for International Education (CCIE) comprises the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC), the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), the Canadian Association of Public Schools – International (CAPS-I), the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) and Languages Canada.

Inaugurated in 2010 as the Canadian Consortium for International Education Marketing (CCIEM), the name change reflects the group’s commitment to the broader goal of advancing all aspects of international education.

CCIE members represent more than 500 institutions and school boards from across the country, covering the spectrum of Canadian education.

CCIE members recognize the value of international education for Canada and Canadians. In continuing to work together, we can maximize the benefits of international education for international students coming to Canada, Canadian students studying abroad, and institutions and communities across the country.
