Government of Saskatchewan Celebrates International Education Week

Released on November 14, 2017

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to recognize International Education Week from November 13-17, 2017.  International Education Week is celebrated in more than 100 countries and is dedicated to showcasing the impact that international education has on preparing students for the world.

“International study provides students with opportunities to develop new skills and learn about new languages, culture and traditions,” Advanced Education Minister Herb Cox said.  “This week highlights the importance of international education and the contribution it makes to our students and our province.”

The Saskatchewan Plan for Growth identified international education as a cornerstone for the province’s immigration strategy.  The Saskatchewan Post-Secondary International Education Strategy has three goals.

These include:

  • increasing the number of international students in Saskatchewan;
  • increasing the number of Saskatchewan students studying abroad; and
  • increasing the number and value of international research partnerships.
Last year, there were approximately 7,000 international students studying in Saskatchewan from more than 130 countries.  The top three countries for those students were China, India and Nigeria.  International students contribute more than $150 million each year to Saskatchewan’s economy.

There are 27 post-secondary institutions currently designated to host international students.  In 2016-17 there were close to 1,000 Saskatchewan post-secondary students who travelled to more than 60 different countries for study abroad experiences. Saskatchewan’s universities are centres of excellence for their research.  They have published nearly 1,500 internationally co-authored research papers and received approximately $13 million to conduct international research.
