CIEC’s quarterly newsletter is distributed to over 21 000 subscribers, including Canadian & Indian government officials, Colleges and Universities, education insiders and education agents. It is also archived on the CIEC website. CIEC’s goal is to inform readers of key developments in the Canada-India education corridor and CIEC members often share their expertise via article contribution. CIEC Members enjoy plenty of ‘marketing opportunities’ via links, logos and advertising spots in our newsletter and targeted email campaigns. In addition, members can submit up to three activities or events per month (recruiting trips/travelling delegates, new programs/start dates, job postings) for inclusion in Disha’s ‘Marketplace’.
CIEC members will be only those accredited academic institutions and/or members of national bodies in either country to ensure the highest level of integrity and transparency in quality. Education Consultants/Agents/Counsellors will be screened using a third party validation process to be considered for membership.
CIEC Website and Social Networking Sites
CIEC provides exposure for its members by posting links and multimedia profiles of all Academic, Corporate & Agent Members, as well as sponsors on our website as well as social media channels such as Facebook, LinkedIn & Twitter. CIEC promotes its members activities regularly via social networking sites and continually strives to build an online community, further fostering brand awareness. CIEC’s ‘Student Resources’ page will serve as a ‘student guide’ to studying in Canada and online initiatives are under development to ensure CIEC remains the hub of activity in the Canada-India education sector.
