“CBIE events and PLCs provide an excellent opportunity to meet with and learn from colleagues across the country. Perhaps CBIE's greatest value is this ability to bring together professionals from across the sector to engage in open, productive and respectful dialogue.”- Marc Usunier, University of Saskatchewan
“I have found CBIE to be a valuable source of information and a way to build a network of colleagues. I have also been inspired by the work done by CBIE globally through CIDA supported programming.``- Catherine Fisher, University of Calgary
“CBIE has meant many things to my institution over the years: as an advocate for international student immigration policy, a source of high quality sponsored students, and a forum for connecting with colleagues - but in recent years its most valued contribution has been CBIE's support for the new generation of international educators in Canada. I have observed tremendous growth in the professional skills of my staff from CBIE's attention to our emerging leaders in the field and this will have a lasting impact on international education in Canada.”- Sonja Knutson, Memorial University of Newfoundland
“I have come to depend on CBIE to help position me within a recognized profession and to establish international education as an integral part of post-secondary education.”- Alison Cummings, Queen’s University
“CBIE has been the way I have developed my internationalization professional network. It has made all the difference!”- Clayton Smith, University of Windsor
“CBIE has been a source of leadership, inspiration and support for professionals in international education for decades. We value the friendly and open-minded communication with all colleagues in CBIE. Their insights and their readiness to support our work have provided a valuable source of support for us at the university-level.”- Britta Baron, University of Alberta
