March 17, 2022


Saskatchewan has developed a first-of-its-kind education initiative that will provide foreign training to the post-secondary education industry.

The Government of Saskatchewan announced the International Education Practitioner Program on Monday, March 14, 2022, which will support the postsecondary education sector in capacity building and expand Saskatchewan's international education program.

“The International Education Practitioner Program will deliver international education training to the post-secondary education sector to support a consistent level of understanding and knowledge of international engagement across the province,” stated the Advanced Education Minister Gene Makowsky.

“This program builds capacity within the sector to host international students and helps meet commitments in Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan by positioning the province as a study destination of choice.”

According to the ministry, this program will ensure that foreign education services are delivered consistently across the province, allowing students to benefit from the same experience and level of support regardless of where they study in Saskatchewan.

“The International Education Practitioner program will provide our practitioners with tremendous opportunities to share their experiences, continue learning as professionals and build stronger networks across our province,” stated Pirita Mattola, the University of Saskatchewan’s acting director of strategic enrolment management.

“The program will help build capacity, make progress toward international education goals in Saskatchewan, and play a key role in contributing to our collective competitiveness and responsiveness in a changing International Education environment.”

The Ministry of Advanced Education will work with the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) to give this training at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, according to the province.
