Canada’s Global Skills Opportunity: Re-imagining international mobility in a digital age

This session will be divided into two parts:

Part 1 – In a world transformed by COVID-19, the importance of global skills and competencies to the success of Canada’s economic outlook and future prosperity has never been greater. Intentionally supporting the development of these skills among Canadian youth, especially for those facing barriers to participation, while also drawing on experience and talent from around the world will be essential to Canada’s recovery strategy. Join an expert panel discussion on the importance of digital literacy, it’s impact on re-defining international mobility, and how international mobility and education can address labor market and skills challenges facing Canadian youth and new Canadians alike.

Part 2 – This session will provide an update on Canada’s Outbound Student Mobility Pilot Program including operational guidelines on how institutions and their students can benefit from this government of Canada-funded opportunity.
