Scholarship Program
Canada-India S&T Agreement
The participation of academic institutions in the Canada-India science and technology (S&T) relationship is
significant. Bilateral cooperation in higher education is also supported through the International Science and
Technology Partnerships Program (ISTPP) where institutions of higher learning play a major role. Two- thirds of the
collaborative research and development projects in 2008 and 2009 under the auspices of the Program are in
partnership with higher educational institutions.

2009 closure of this Canadian presence has necessitated a mitigation strategy to engage more directly in promotion

Education is increasingly important in Canada’s growing relationship with India
Education featured on agenda of recent high-level visits to India
Canada still faces challenges in the Indian education market, including:
• Lack of knowledge about Canada’s excellence in education
• Lack of visibility for Canadian education brand
• Lack of on-the-ground support network
Canada’s education strategy in India aims at:
• Delivering well coordinated initiatives to promote awareness of Canada’s education;
• Providing market intelligence and support to Canadian institutions;
• Informing students and influence brokers of education and career opportunities
• Facilitating networking and collaboration between Canadian and Indian institutions
through visits, seminars, workshops, outcalls, etc.

Association of Canadian Community Colleges Student Partners Program (SPP)
Launched in April 2009, The SPP is a pilot project designed and implemented by ACCC
and Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) visa offices in India.
Twenty ACCC member institutions are involved in the pilot.
The program is a model for expediting the student visa process and delivering high
approval rates while maintaining program integrity. The pilot is currently being
evaluated and an announcement will soon be made regarding a possible extension in
2010. At this time, SPP is open to Indian nationals only although a new program will
launch in China, 2010.
Stakeholder Interest:
Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC):
“College participation in the International Academic Mobility Program (IAM) would be
enhanced with more flexible program parameters including internships, opportunities for
students from under-represented groups, and an expansion to China, India, Brazil
and Chile where colleges are actively involved in international partnerships and where
markets for Canadian products are growing.”
Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE):
“CBIE recommends that the Government of Canada continue to increase its investment
in scholarships for international students, including significant support to students from
developing countries.”
Association of Universities and Colleges Canada (AUCC):
“AUCC recommends that the government of Canada advance Canada’s India strategy
and higher education cooperation with other countries by supporting two-way student,
intern and researcher mobility and enhanced education marketing activities to promote
Canada’s brand of excellence.”
“Emerging economic powers, such as India, China and Brazil, are becoming more competitive by
making major R&D investments. Thomson Reuters predicts that India’s research productivity will be
on par with most G8 nations within seven or eight years.”

A Partner in Education and Innovation
“More than 100 million people from India – the equivalent of the combined
labour forces of the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Spain – are projected
to join the workforce by 2020. With the youngest age profile among large
economies and the largest national workforce, India holds great potential to
become one of the most attractive talent providers.”
World Economic Forum, 2010
Questions for discussion
How can we better collaborate?
Are there regions in India that are of key interest?
Are there key interests in partnership or off-shore delivery?
