What’s New
> Increased promotional efforts paying off in Canada > According to Citizenship
and Immigration's 2008 overview, Canada saw more international students enrolling in
its institutions in 2008 than it has seen in a decade. The overview does not provide a
breakdown according to level of education—primary, secondary, or tertiary—but there
are indications that Canadian colleges and universities played an active role in the
increase in enrollments. Interest is also being driven by the Canadian International
Education Bureau's new program, "Imagine Education in Canada."

> Publication of the first sectoral promotional pamphlets on Education >


The Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong has recently published the first
sectoral promotional pamphlets on Information, Communications and Technology
education opportunity. This is the first of a series of pamphlets listing Canadian Education Institutions on
priority sectors, namely ICT, Biotechnology, Environment and Food & Beverages.
