Canada Partnership Forum | Vancouver 2019

The Canada Partnership Forum 2019 took place in Vancouver, from April 19th to 24th. We had the honour of receiving 190 higher education focused recruitment agents from 30 different countries, for 4 days of exceptional networking, fun, mingling, and the development of stronger ties between the representatives of the highest educational institutes in Canada.

“ILAC has always been a pioneer in university and college pathways, sending students to higher education programs after the language program with ILAC, so we thought it was a natural extension to create the Canada Partnership Forum and provide our agents with an opportunity to create meaningful interactions and partnerships of their own,” said Ilan Cohen, ILAC’s Founder and Co-President.

With over 1,300 one-on-one meetings, 70+ seminars, and thousands of unforgettable memories, we had the pleasure of uniting and being the point of contact between our partners and the 85+ representatives from various recognized universities and colleges that attended the forum.

For some, the Canada Partnership Forum was also a rewarding experience that will help them introduce their higher education institutions to students around the world. “I’ve met with a number of agents from different countries and I’m having very good quality conversations. It’s good to find a partner that has students who are interested in what you have to offer, and that’s what I’m finding really helpful about this event,” said Paula Thiessen from Lakehead University.

Look at the highlights of the event and relive it with us!

Welcome Reception at ILAC’s Campus

ILAC is deeply saddened by the recent tragedy surrounding the Ukrainian airlines crash in Iran.
This is a tremendous loss to the Iranian-Canadian community and our education community who have lost such incredibly talented and accomplished contributing members.

The loss and contribution to our communities will be profoundly felt across all cities in Canada.

At ILAC, the international nature of our employees, students and friends’ community is something we are incredibly proud of, however this sometimes means we are affected by such disasters.

We are a proud employer of many Iranian-Canadians and Ukrainian-Canadians, as well as a host to many students from these two nationalities.
Every day we strive to create a community of inclusivity at all levels and we will continue to do so in honour of those who lost their lives in this tragic disaster.

We would like to extend condolences and our deepest sympathy to those who have been affected and we look to support the affected community in Toronto and Vancouver as best as we can.
