With a growing number of students from Hong Kong heading to Canada for further education each year, parents and students here need to know the ins and outs of the Canadian education system and the specific situations at different Canadian institutions. To provide a platform for families to learn more directly from university representatives and consular officials, the Canadian Consulate and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce are partnering on a series of Study in Canada events. We're excited to invite you to our first virtual seminar featuring speakers from the Canadian Consulate, the University of Alberta, and the Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology on July 9. 

Join us to learn more about studying in Canada straight from the experts!
