Alberta China Partnership
Part of Alberta’s international focus is to strengthen economic and cultural ties in Asia, including China. Expanding education relationships has proven to further economic, cultural, and diplomatic relationships between countries on many levels. In 2010, the Province renewed its agreement with China to extend the cooperative relationship between our respective ministries of education. In addition, a subsequent Education administrators study tour mission to China expanded areas of cooperation to include the municipality of Chongqing.
Given the varied interests of both Chinese and Alberta education partners, International Education Services and senior administrators from Alberta school jurisdictions have developed a Strategic Framework for Enhancing International Education with China and an action plan implemented in 2011.
The Framework supports the goals and objectives of Alberta’s International Strategy, its newly enacted legislation to create a provincial Asia Advisory Council, and provides alignment with the renewed agreement between Alberta and China ministries of education. The Framework also supports the international education direction and initiatives of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada which identify China as a country of primary interest.
