International Development

Canadore’s Internationalization Strategy is being developed against the tumultuous backdrop of a global pandemic.

Our Mission is to harness, to the greatest extent possible, the benefits of holistic, authentic and ethical internationalization for Canadore College.

Academics without Borders (AWB) is a network of Canadian universities and colleges that have come together to collaborate on projects in partnership with institutions of higher learning in the developing world.

The AWB Network provides important linkages between institutions, their faculty and staff with a common commitment to global development.

Canadore College entered into an agreement to become a member of AWB in January 2021 in order to facilitate and enhance opportunities for Canadore academic faculty to contribute their expertise to projects.

Such initiatives and projects are a key element of an institution’s approach to holistic internationalization. Project linkages established through the AWB have potential to mature and strengthen over time to include broader institutional partnerships

With Canadore College’s participation in AWB, academic faculty at the college can now participate in AWB coordinated projects. Canadore College academic faculty are encouraged to consider signing up for the AWB newsletter so that they may be informed when a new call for proposals is issued, as well as receive AWB network news directly here:

Canadore College, in collaboration with the World University Services of Canada (WUSC) participates in the Student Refugee Program (SRP), a Canada-wide initiative involving a network of institutions that host student refugee learners every year. Canadore College graduated first WUSC student and looking forward to welcome new students in the upcoming years.

Participation in initiatives such as the WUSC student refugee program is testament to Canadore’s commitment to reciprocity and development in all it’s international endeavours and engagements. WUSC is a Canadian non-profit organization working to create a better world for all young people. We bring together a diverse network of students, volunteers, schools, governments, and businesses who share this vision. Together, we foster youth-centered solutions for improved education, economic, and empowerment opportunities to overcome inequality and exclusion in over 15 countries across Asia, Africa, and the Americas.

Educanada aims to increase opportunities for Canadian post-secondary institutions to welcome international students from a wide range of countries and territories on short-term exchanges for study or research. Canadore College is happy to invite non-Canadians to study or research at our college

Successful Canadian post-secondary institutions will have the opportunity to strengthen and diversify their international linkages and to promote their academic and research excellence in the new markets, in line with the objectives of Canada's International Education Strategy.

The new connections created through the program will diversify and enrich Canada’s education engagement with a diverse range of partners, strengthen bilateral ties, and complement the Government of Canada’s broader international trade diversification efforts.
