International Student Settlement Supports Across and Within Sectors
April 13 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Canada increasingly relies on international students to fill its economic immigration needs. However, its multi-step ‘edugration’ system involves prolonged periods of temporary residence and precarity, and gaps in international student settlement supports are clear. What supports are most urgently needed, and at which stage of the ‘edugration’ process? Who should fund them? Which sectors are best positioned to deliver them? What best practices, especially involving inter-sectoral coordination, exist? What ethical considerations are at play? Speakers from BC, Nova Scotia, and Ontario will highlight key issues and initiatives across and within higher education institutions, governments, and the settlement sector.
