International Committee

MANDATE: The international Committee functions as a working committee to coordinate international CAFCE initiatives that support the mobility of Co-operative Education students abroad and in the U.S.  To this end, the following initiatives are under way:

  1. Developing partnerships with various service providers to obtain preferred rates for students from CAFCE member organizations going on international work terms. A partnership with Cultural Vistas was developed in 2012, and one with an insurance provider is currently being explored.
  2. Developing resources to support international students in Co-operative Education: understanding the Canadian workplace; preparing for the Canadian workplace, and resources available on Canadian campuses to assist international students.
  3. Developing website content to support student mobility and international students
  4. Developing a proposal for a mobility scholarship for students going on international work terms
