The High Commission of Canada in Jamaica will host more than 30 Canadian post-secondary institutions in Jamaica from November 4 to 8, 2019 for its annual Study in Canada education fair.

The fair, which falls under the EduCanada brand of international education offerings in the North American country, offers Jamaican students, parents and guidance counsellors a wealth of information on the various study opportunities in Canada.

“We are pleased to offer the opportunity for Jamaican students to explore education possibilities with some of the best colleges and universities in Canada,” said Laurie Peters, Canada's high commissioner to Jamaica.

“As Jamaicans know well, Canada offers one of the safest, most welcoming and multicultural societies on the planet, with world-class cities and natural wonders. By choosing to study in Canada, you will have access to an excellent education experience — one that is rooted in a culture of hands-on learning, smaller student-teacher ratios, as well as cutting edge technology, research, and innovation,” she added.

The fair will be held in Kingston at Spanish Court Hotel, Worthington Centre, on November 4 and 5 from 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm; and in Montego Bay at Holiday Inn Resort on November 7 from 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm, and November 8 from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm.

The high commission will also host a fair in Mandeville, at Northern Caribbean University, on November 6, from 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm.

All fairs are open to the public and entry is free of charge, the high commission has said. It said, too, that its representatives will also be present at the fairs to provide additional information on scholarships, visa requirements and study options.

The education fair continues to Nassau, The Bahamas from November 13-15.
