 “The experience offered to the delegates of the mission exemplified world class standards. Professionalism was a hallmark of the mission displayed by the management team and the participants. I highly recommend continuity of the program which will allow other persons in education and training to participate in the emerging trend of globalizing this phenomenon.”
Mr. Pius Lacan, Vice Principal, Administration and Development at the Montego Bay Community College in Jamaica

This event is a key feature of the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP), offered under the International Scholarships Program of Global Affairs Canada.
