After a year of lockdown measures and travel restrictions, the third session in our One on One webinar series revolved around how institutions in different parts of Canada have adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic and what their outlook is for the future. Moderated by Husain F. Neemuchwala of the Canada India Education Council, points mentioned include:
Challenges institutions should expect to face as students return
Changes that educators have made to maintain the student experience
Steps that must be taken before institutions re-open and students are back on campus
This session of the One on One webinar series features representatives from the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service and officials from Canada Campus Visits as they discuss international student mobility.
Our first session focused on Seneca College, located in Toronto, Canada and featured David Agnew (President), Keith Monrose (Executive Director, Seneca International) and Prashant Srivastava (Director, Regional Business Development, South Asia). As a top destination for international students they discussed what makes Canada, and Seneca in particular, an attractive overseas destination. Our speakers also addressed how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Seneca and what actions they have taken to ensure international students will be able to begin their studies soon.
While we are thankful to the many members we serve and are grateful for their support, it has come to our attention that a few 'Copy Cat' organizations have been hastily created to replicate our success. Such 'similar sounding' organizations have been ostensibly established in India and purport to give the impression that there is a causal, legal or business relationship with our duly organized and recognized, Canadian non-profit association, the CANADA INDIA EDUCATION COUNCIL(CIEC).
The activity of these Indian organizations have no sanction from us and their nefarious activities may be to the detriment of those dealing with them. Please take notice, any communication or contact with you will be through our legally established website, or via correspondence through, with or from, our Chairman Hon. Pierre J. Pettigrew PC; Vice-Chairman Kam Rathee, Esq or our CEO Husain F. Neemuchwala.
