Canadian schools to visit Jamaica for education fair
Twenty-two Canadian post-secondary institutions will be in Jamaica from November 5 to 8, 2018 to participate in the annual Study in Canada education fair.
The initiative is part of Canada’s 2018 EduCanada Caribbean Regional Education Tour (E-CRET) and offers students, parents and teaching staff the chance to learn about study opportunities in Canada.
“We are delighted to invite to Jamaica some of Canada’s finest tertiary education institutions,” said Laurie Peters, Canada’s High Commissioner to Jamaica.
“All are invited to discover why Canada remains a top study destination for Caribbean students,” Peters added.
The fair will be held in St Andrew at the Spanish Court Hotel, Worthington Centre, on November 5 and 6 from 2:00 p.m to 6:00 p.m and in Montego Bay on November 8 at the Holiday Inn Resort from 2:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m.
Both fairs are opened to the general public and entry is free of charge.
Representatives from the High Commission of Canada’s Commercial and Migration Programs will also be present at the Education Fair to provide additional information on scholarships, visa requirements, and study options.
One component of E-CRET is the “Study in Canada” briefing which is hosted by the High Commission of Canada for the Canadian universities and colleges, local high school Guidance Counsellors and education stakeholders.
Nicole McLaren Campbell, Chief Executive Officer of AIM Educational Services, will be the guest speaker.
The Jamaica leg of the education fair is part of the 2018 E-CRET Education Fair coordinated by the High Commission of Canada in Jamaica and Global Affairs Canada.
