Languages Canada reports on the success of its trade mission to Mexico

CANCÚN, September 25-27, 2017 - Languages Canada brought sixteen members – representing universities, colleges, and private sector language programs – to Cancún, Mexico to meet with 30 top-quality education agencies from every corner of the country.   

Participating members also had the opportunity to meet with Trade Commissioner and Academic Affairs Officer Laura Garza of the Embassy of Canada in Mexico, who delivered a dynamic presentation about trends in the Mexican market and business opportunities for Canadian institutions. 

Participants also had the pleasure of meeting Jorge Mario Baeza Ruiz of the Ministry of Economic Development (SEDE) for the State of Quintana Roo.  Languages Canada will be continuing its discussion with SEDE regarding further possibilities for collaboration.

The feedback from both agents and schools was very positive. Members praised the high quality and diversity of the agents selected for this event. Similarly, agents voiced their strong satisfaction with the variety and quality of programs and destinations that they can promote to their clients.  


This trade mission was made possible thanks to support from the Embassy of Canada in Mexico, funding from the Government of Canada’s Global Opportunities for Associations (GOA) program, and the generous sponsorship of guard.me International Insurance.
