In what can be described as a milestone for Wolf Creek Public Schools (WCPS), the central Alberta school division earlier this month signed its first ever exchange agreement with a school district in China.


WCPS superintendent Jayson Lovell — along with assistant superintendent Mark McWhinnie and learning services director Sean Lougheed — travelled to Guangzhou in the province of Guangdong, China last month to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that establishes a cooperative exchange between WCPS and the Liwan Bureau of Education.


Being called ‘One Belt, One Road Education Initiative’, the agreement was signed March 19. It builds a pathway for educational and cultural exchanges that began back when WCPS was approached last December.


 “It was amazing experience for us, very exciting in terms of a brand new initiative and opportunity for our students and staff and I think for our communities as well,” Lovell said.

“We live in a very global world, where our student understanding is not simply confined to their communities, province or county. So, as a district, we feel an obligation to help expand those opportunities.”

Exchanges will last a couple of weeks, with the first group of Chinese students — between 20 or 30 — set to arrive in July. A second group from China will visit in late September with the first group from WCPS heading over next March.


Three sister schools in Liwan have been paired with Lacombe Composite and Blackfalds Iron Ridge Junior initially, with further WCPS schools to be added as the opportunities arise.


WCPS was the only non-B.C. school division in the contingent that went to China to sign agreements, while also touring 11 schools in the region.


The motivation and interest shown by the Guangzhou schools and school districts to be engaged in these exchanges is one of the exciting things for WCPS, according to Lovell.


“They really want their students to seek different experiences and opportunities outside of China and Canada is a very credible, desirable location,” he stated.


“They see Canada as a country of opportunity, one that is open and that embraces diversity. They also know a lot about Canada and that is one thing that really surprised us.”


Another interesting note Lovell stated was a few of the differences between how the schools operate — with normal class sizes between 40 and 50 students, who all live at the schools, while there is more teacher-directed instruction rather than collaboration that is done in Canada.


“They are also very focused on the future and what this opportunity may do for the students and, ultimately, for their country.”

去年年底,加拿大移民、难民和公民事务部(IRCC)部长Marco Mendicino宣布,将在未来三年大幅增加移民数量,以弥补2020年因新冠疫情造成的移民缺口。根据新计划,加拿大计划在2021年至2023年期间迎来超过120万新移民,2021年将新增40.1万永久居民,2022年为41.1万,2023年为42.1万。在新冠肺炎大流行之前,之前的计划设定的目标是2021年达到35.1万人,2022年达到36.1万人。2021年上半年,加拿大频频放出大赦政策,移民门槛降至前所未有的低点——基本上有符合移民类别的工作和语言成绩,就能够移民。然而,即便是如此“基本”的条件,仍然有很多想移民的国际学生被卡在门外:因为信息不对称性,很多国际学生,尤其是中国学生,在加拿大求学时首选“名校”而不是“专业”,导致了即使在全世界排名前100的多伦多大学和UBC毕业后,因为读的是文科或者商科专业等非加拿大紧缺...
