Dr. J. Prospero E. De Vera III, CHED Chairperson, and Hon. Gene Makowsky, Minister of Advanced Education, show the Memorandum of Understanding on higher education cooperation between Philippines and Canada’s province of Saskatchewan.

The MOU is an offshoot of the virtual meeting held last November 2020 during the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) World Pavilion.

The partnership aims to lay the framework of the specific programs of academic cooperation between the two parties in areas such as information exchange, education exchange, and research collaboration.

The MOU also ignites CHED’s priority of providing professional development and capacity-building for higher education institutions officials, faculty, and staff. Furthermore, this partnership will expand institutional linkages at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels.
