The EduCanada delegation provides an opportunity for Bhutanese students, education consultants, school/college principals and other key influencers to interact with representatives of Canadian educational institutions and Government of Canada officials. The delegation program also offers a platform to gain knowledge about studying and living in Canada, student visas, the Canadian business environment, and future prospects upon graduation.

Sharing his thoughts about the education delegation to Bhutan, Cameron MacKay, Ambassador for Canada to Bhutan, said: “The second EduCanada delegation to Bhutan offers an excellent opportunity to know more about studying in Canada. Canada’s globally recognized educational institutions promote experiential learning, strong entrepreneurship, and cutting-edge research and innovation. I encourage students from Bhutan to take full advantage of this visit and learn more about the benefits of studying in Canada and the opportunities that it can open up for them.”

Canadian educational institutions are located in some of the most entrepreneurial and business-savvy cities in the world, home to a large number of international firms across a wide variety of sectors.
