QC announces $80M for attracting international students to French PSE

The Government of Quebec recently announced $80M over four years for attracting and retaining international students who wish to study postsecondary education in French. Eligible international students will receive a special exemption which allows them to pay the same basic tuition as QC students. To be eligible, students must study at a postsecondary institution outside of the Montreal metropolitan region, pursue a full-time education in French, and enroll in a program that reflects the priority sectors of the province’s Opération main-d’œuvre initiative. Cégep de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue directeur general Sylvain Blais told Radio-Canadathat the program will have strong enrolment benefits for the cégeps and that it presents an excellent opportunity for regional employers to draw on new talent.
