Inbound Trade Mission with Colombian Education Agencies

Montreal, February 2023

IN COLLABORATION WITH

Build Valuable Relationships with Decision-Makers From Top Colombian Agencies

Colombia ranked as Languages Canada members' second largest source country in 2021, sending its highest recorded number of students to Canadian language programs. Although this was in part the result of members being open for business while competing study destinations were closed to inbound travel, Canada has the potential to remain a top destination for Colombian students.

As Colombian students continue to look to Canada for English, French, postsecondary, and K-12 education, the sector must also nurture partner relationships to solidify Canada's popularity and sustain its recent success in Colombia.

This is why Languages Canada will host 30 Colombian education agents in Montreal in February, 2023!

As Tourisme Montréal puts it, Montreal is ‘’a striking union of European charm and North American attitude, [the city] seduces visitors with a harmonious pairing of the historic and the new, from exquisite architecture to fine dining’’. This is the perfect setting for members to show Colombian agents that their students are more than welcome in Canada.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to strengthen long-standing partnerships, create new and rewarding relationships, and ensure agents feel motivated to keep Canada top of mind.

  • Conduct B2B meetings and network with decision-makers from 30 high-quality, pre-selected Colombian agency representatives in an intimate, small-scale setting;
