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

The popular EduCanada Fair offers Jamaican students, parents and guidance counsellors a wealth of information regarding the many 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.” 

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

For the first time, the Canadian High Commission will also host a fair in Mandeville at the Northern Caribbean University on November 6 from 2:30 pm to 5 pm. All Fairs are open to the public during these hours and entry is free of charge.

Representatives from the Canadian High Commission will also be present at the Education Fair to provide additional information on scholarships, visa requirements and study options. The EduCanada tour will continues to Nassau, Bahamas from 13 to15 November 2019.
