Agents and Partnerships

International Education is an important component of Red River College.

Education Agents

Red River College’s International Education Office has an extensive network of Authorized Education Agents who are engaged in student recruitment and partnerships around the world. Our agents are expected to be knowledgeable about our programs, entrance requirements and application procedures. They represent Red River College in a professional and trustworthy manner at all times. Please note that Red River College does not process student applications from unauthorized agents.

Red River College is a designated education provider in Manitoba, and must ensure that all education agents and recruiters abide by the International Education Act, Manitoba. Please review the International Education Act, to learn more about the Act and how it applies to you. All authorized education agents of RRC are also encouraged to read the Code of Practice and Conduct Regulations.

RRC shall terminate the agreement with immediate effect if an authorized education agent of RRC is found to be in contravention of the Act and the Code of Practice.

At present, Red River College is not appointing new agents until further notice. We will not process student applications from unauthorized agents. Should you require further information, please Contact the recruiter for your area.

Partnerships

While the International Education Office actively recruits international students, it also pursues project opportunities and partnerships outside of Canada.

Planning for Canada: A Continuum of Pre-arrival Services for Immigrants to Canada

What is Planning for Canada?
Funded by the Government of Canada, Planning for Canada is a free pre-arrival program that provides economic and family class immigrants with the right information, tools, and Canadian contacts while they prepare to move to Canada. As a result, newcomers are better equipped to find work that reflects their skills and education as well as make informed settlement decisions.

What does Planning for Canada offer?
• Full-day group orientation session on preparing for life in Canada
• Personalized one-hour planning session on career and settlement goals
• Connections to Canadian organizations for additional guidance
• Access to specialized online information sessions and workshops

Who are the program partners?
Planning for Canada is jointly delivered by the Canadian Orientation Abroad (COA) program and the Canadian Immigrant Integration Program (CIIP). COA is a program of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and CIIP is a program of Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan). Both COA and CIIP are leaders in conducting pre-arrival services. COA has offered pre-arrival sessions to economic and family class immigrants since 2001 and has served over 5,000 participants to date. CIIP has offered pre-arrival services to economic immigrants since 2007 and has served over 30,000 participants to date.

Since 2007, Red River College has been a Focal Point Partner in Manitoba delivering pre-arrival online educational and career advising to Manitoba-bound immigrants while they are still in their country of origin. This service enables immigrants to prepare effectively overseas to understand and meet the credential, language and skill requirements needed to achieve economic integration in Manitoba.

This 7:28 minute video explains the program’s pre-arrival services, as well as the settlement, language and employment services upon arrival in Manitoba.
