    Éducation internationale helps make Québec students
    more aware of the international reality and supports
    member activities of an international nature. This involves,
    among other things, student and teacher exchanges,
    school twinnings, recruitment and education for foreign
    students, production of guides and training materials,
    financing for development missions, the exportation of
    know-how and being present on the international scene.

    For all our partners, working together with Éducation inter-
    nationale means profiting from our members’ 150 years of
    collective expertise, as well as gaining access to Québec’s lar-
    gest grouping of professionals in the education field.
