About CBIE2024

Canada’s international education (IE) conference will take place this year in Ottawa, the nation’s capital, at the Westin Hotel and the Shaw Centre, situated on the traditional unceded territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin People.

CBIE2024 will explore the theme: Beyond the Horizon.

This year’s conference will focus on innovation and recalibration in international education looking further into the future than ever before. The theme underscores our commitment to convening IE practitioners, policymakers, and stakeholders for collaborative and constructive dialogue and thought leadership that carefully considers our students, our campuses, our communities, and our role in the global landscape.

The decisions we make and the directions we choose today will significantly impact the future of international education both in Canada and around the world for years to come. How can we, as individuals, institutions, and international partners, act to show bold and visionary leadership? How can we come together as a community to create enduring value and secure a long-term future that can withstand the adversities that will inevitably come?

Join us at CBIE2024 as we take stock of present challenges and uncertainties and share forward-looking, balanced, and sustainable approaches to reimagining a bright future for international education that takes us beyond the horizon.
