Canada and British Columbia continue to enjoy an enviable position as some of the world’s most popular destinations for international students. Some of this can certainly be attributed to the work, policies and reputation of Canada and BC, but some of this is also due to changing trends and tastes, some due to local diaspora populations and changing global demographics, economies and geopolitics, and some due to the generous missteps of competitor jurisdictions. What lessons can be drawn from the past and from current global trends in international education? This presentation compares Canada’s situation today to similar previous trends in other jurisdictions, identifying threats and opportunities for the future.
