Canada and China have a long history of cooperation in education and it is a vital and growing area of Canada-China bilateral relations. There are deep existing education links with over 475 active agreements between Canadian and Chinese institutions. Both countries have committed to expand academic exchanges, aspiring to reach the goal of 100,000 students studying in each other’s countries by 2017. As well, through the former Understanding Canada: Canadian Studies program, there are 45 Canadian Studies Centres and programs at Chinese universities which continue to support our bilateral academic relations.
The Canadian Consulate General of Guangzhou provides information on study permits and other entry requirements.
In 2009, Canada welcomed about 200,000 international students. Over 50,000 Chinese students made the choice to study in Canada, representing the largest group of foreign students in our country. This is an important part of our strong people to people links with China and contributes tremendously to the deepening of our bilateral relationship. In addition, many more come to Canada to learn English or French. International students bring a rich culture to our classrooms. Your knowledge and skills are welcome in our schools.
