The CanChamHK Education Committee and Royal Bank of Canada proudly presents the first episode of the Considering Canada Series: Education 101.



Canada is an amazing destination for traveling, studying, working and living with its beautiful nature, rich culture and well-developed systems. The "Considering Canada Series" will focus on different aspects, e.g. Education, Financial Planning, and lifestyle in major cities, for participants to take into account when planning to move to Canada.



This episode on "Education 101" will shed light on the education options for a wide range of ages and interests. Before planning a potential move to Canada, there’s a lot to consider: education choices for your children or your post-graduate plans to enhance your future career.  In this panel, we have invited major educational institutes / experts to share some key features in the Canadian Education System enabling participants to make the most informed choices for their family or themselves.
