Visioning for the future – The next 150 years of International Education in Ontario”

Carleton University in partnership with Algonquin College, will be hosting the 2018 CBIE Ontario Regional Meeting/OAIE Conference in Ottawa on June 7 & 8, 2018. Participants are invited to arrive in Ottawa on the evening of Wednesday June 6 in preparation for the conference.

This year’s conference theme is “Visioning for the future – The next 150 years of International Education in Ontario”. With Algonquin, Carleton, CBIE and Canada all celebrating major milestones in the last year, this is an exciting time of planning and renewal for professionals involved in international education. Innovative approaches to designing programming and support services are increasingly important and teams are being encouraged to think creatively as they manage the resources to prepare or support students, faculty and staff involved in mobility programs and international experiences.


Sessions should reflect the vision of the conference but can also relate to different areas of interest or challenges within the International Education community. Presentations by multiple institutions and those which highlight unique programs and opportunities for collaboration will be prioritized.

All 60 minute sessions will be organized in three main streams for participants to follow:

  • International Student Services & Support; orientation, immigration, programming, ESL
  • Student Mobility & Education Abroad; exchange, internships, experiential learning, study tours
  • Strategic Planning & Internationalization; risk management, research & scholarship, strategy, internationalization at home

Submission deadline: Sunday, April 1st, 2018
