The 11th annual ICEF Toronto gives educators from the Americas the opportunity to meet student recruitment agents and service providers from around the world in one convenient location.

For most international students, agents play an important role in selecting and applying to institutions abroad. As a result, agents have become a vital recruitment method for educators from the Americas.

For the last ten years, ICEF Toronto has attracted an increasing number of participants, firmly establishing itself as Canada’s leading education networking event.

At the event, educators from the Americas will meet with student recruitment agents and service providers from around the world. All agents attending this event are carefully selected and are required to pass ICEF’s strict screening process.

Prior to the event, educators, service providers, and agents are able to go online to schedule up to 38 one-to-one business meetings with participants of their choice. The ICEF online booking system allows educators to view comprehensive agent profiles, helping you to identify and meet with the agents most relevant to you.

In addition to formal meetings and social events, event participants may also participate in various market intelligence seminars and industry presentations.

Attended by the best education agents focused on the Americas, and organised by the industry leader in educator-agent networking events, ICEF Toronto is the must-attend international education event in Canada.
