Who we are

A global leader in international education, dedicated to equity, quality, inclusiveness and partnership.

Established in 1966, the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) is a national, not-for-profit, non-governmental membership organization dedicated exclusively to international education.

CBIE promotes the special interests of the international learner, both the foreign national studying in Canada and the Canadian studying abroad, through educational exchanges, scholarships, training awards and internships, technical assistance in education and other related services.

CBIE is a unique organization in Canada. Among the major national organizations, only CBIE covers the spectrum of Canadian education, from K-12 to postgraduate, public and private sectors.

Working closely with a membership of over 150 education providers nationwide, and with a network of strategic partners throughout Canada and around the globe, CBIE is ideally positioned to promote global learning by mobilizing expertise, knowledge, opportunity and leadership.
