With Australia getting overcrowded with Indian students and a new visa policy in the pipeline by the UK regarding security deposit for visas, Canada is making full efforts to woo students from India to study in its universities especially in Nova Scotia and other places.

Representatives from 12 universities were here at Delhi Public School (DPS) on Wednesday to familiarise the school and its students with the courses suitable to their needs offered by various Canadian universities.

"Canadians are known to be friendlier which smoothens the path for students to study in its universities," said DPS principal Sangeeta Singh.

The 12-member Canadian delegation was led by Mike Rossan, director, marketing and recruitment, Halifax, in Nova Scotia.

Several points of concern were touched regarding potential, attributes, personality, interests, talents, expectations and resources besides strengths and weaknesses to target a course suitable for a student.

A unique concept of career fare was organised on the occasion wherein students could comprehensively understand career options and their value in the job markets in India and Canada.
