The Canada Learning Initiative in China (CLIC) is a Canada-wide study abroad program that connects Canadian students with Chinese universities. We create innovative and meaningful ways for students to continue their education in China.
CLIC formed in response to the imbalance between Chinese students in Canada and Canadian students in China. In 2015 alone, more than 100,000 Chinese students attended Canadian schools and universities, while only 3,585 Canadians studied in China. However, Canadian students have everything to gain from Canada’s growing relationship with China, and CLIC aims to spread that awareness. We believe that students are investing in their future when they learn about China, develop their sense of self-reliance, expand their worldview, and make connections in one of the world’s leading political and economic powers.
CLIC is designed to meet the needs of Canadian students. This specialized program addresses the concerns that currently prevent Canadian students from choosing China as a study abroad destination. By providing financial support, excellent programming, and opportunities to explore the country, CLIC ensures that a student’s time in China is a valuable, inspiring chapter of their post secondary education.
