International Education Week

Released on November 16, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to recognize International Education Week from November 16-20, 2020.

International education is an important driver for Saskatchewan's economic and cultural growth,” Advanced Education Minister Gene Makowsky said.  By connecting Saskatchewan and Canada to other parts of the world, students have the unique opportunity to develop new skills and learn to think globally to position the province for the future.”

Prior to COVID-19, international students contributed more than $222 million each year to Saskatchewan’s economy.  While constrained in these unprecedented times, the province is taking steps to be a market of choice post-pandemic.

Strengthening the province as a destination for international students and researchers through a strategy is a key component of the Saskatchewan Growth Plan, with a focus on three goals:

  • 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.

The province’s growing network of international relationships provides opportunities for Saskatchewan students to study abroad in key market destinations.

The University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina are known for excellence in research.  In 2018-19, $19 million was provided to Saskatchewan researchers to fund more than 4,100 internationally co-authored published papers.  University faculty across the province engage in global research and contribute to a vast array of topics that impact the world.

International Education Week is celebrated in more than 100 countries to raise awareness and understanding of the benefits of international education.  To learn more about International Education Week, please visit http://cbie.ca/upcoming-events/international-education-week/.
