VU International News and Reviews No. 117 July 16 2018

July 2019

The ministry of advanced education and skills of Ontario province published its international postsecondary education strategy 2018: “Educating Global Citizens”.

Ontario expects to see the proportion of international students rise from the current 15% to 20% by 2022. They put considerable weight on balanced growth with a focus on the STEM fields and PhD candidates. The students engage in the whole range of HE institutions and pay sufficient attention to Francophone education. Also, it wants to better serve the 86% of domestic students to seek a study abroad experience. Moreover, the ministry aims to retain international graduates for the Canadian economy.

Among the specific policy, interventions are measures to create optimal transparency on tuition fees for international students and enhance a consistently high level of international students support services across the Higher Education institutions in Ontario.
