One of the most important relationships in the language education sector is the one between the language program and the educational agency. As a sector representative, Languages Canada is interested primarily in helping our members connect with the best agencies throughout the world. How do we do this?
Activities that bring partners together
Languages Canada organizes activities and selects the most suitable agencies to attend. These activities include trade missions, familiarization tours and forums.
Together with our Global Partner ICEF, Languages Canada and the CCIE offers and deliver the definitive course on Canadian education for agencies.
Languages Canada has signed partnership agreements with IALCA and AREA, and hopes to sign others in the coming year. Of course, our Global Partnership with ICEF allows us to deliver regular updates and provide the latest regarding Canadian language education directly to agencies.
We understand that there are always challenges to resolve in student mobility, and some of these challenges are rooted in government policy. We communicate regularly, not just within our membership, but with agencies to understand what would facilitate student mobility while at the same time maintain program integrity and quality.
More about agents
You can ask them for advice and information on the benefits of different programs, options to choose from and what it’s like to study in different regions and cities of Canada. They can tell you about program fees, living expenses or visa requirements. They can guide you through program registration, help find the right accommodation and arrange travel and other services that will get your Languages Canada experience off to a great start.
Some agents may charge a fee, but most are paid a commission from language programs, so they provide advice for free. Check the websites of the language schools that you’re interested in — there’s usually lots of information you can find on your own. A well-informed agent can help you finalize your decision and get the process started.
