Chairman De Vera shared the latest developments on CHED’s programs and activities to foster close linkages between Philippine higher education institutions and Canadian schools to provide more educational opportunities for Filipino students and make them globally competitive.  Chairman De Vera lauded the students for taking the bold step of studying abroad as this would potentially open opportunities for them.  At the open forum, he emphasized the importance of having a registry of Filipino international students as this will constitute the first step for the Consulate to be able to extend assistance to Filipino students in British Columbia.
