The CAIE Canada-2017 is possible thanks to the collaboration of the National Committee, composed of the following universities:


The Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) is a public French-language university of international influence. The quality of its programs, its research in social issues and its innovations in the creative arts are the foundation stones of its reputation. The University offers training on campus and in its four regional centres. UQAM is known for the quality of its teaching, the accessibility of its educators, the priority given to practical training, the reception services offered to foreign students and the liveliness of its campus life. Dynamic and innovative, UQAM offers more than 300 programs at three levels of study through its School of Management and through six faculties: Fine Arts; Communications; Political Science and Law; Science; Education, and Social Sciences.


Concordia University is at the forefront of next-generation teaching and research. It is believed that there are two great trajectories at work in the world: the growing challenges of society and the mounting complexities of knowledge. The university has an important role in being open, agile, truly collaborative, and internationally-connected; a university that is intent on inspiring a globally-minded population of creative thinkers to generate real-world pragmatic solutions for society’s greatest challenges. At Concordia, teaching and research are both daring and transformative as they anticipate the future of what a university can and should be. Over 46 000 students enrol in the university across two modern and architecturally inspired campuses, and nearly 200 000 graduted students begin a new chapter in their lives.


Founded in Montreal, Quebec, in 1821, McGill University is a leading Canadian post-secondary institution. It has two campuses, 11 faculties, 11 professional schools, 300 programs of study and some 40 000 students, including more than 9 400 graduate students. McGill attracts students from over 150 countries around the world, its 10 200 international students making up 25.5 per cent of the student body. Almost half of McGill students claim a first language other than English, including approximately 20% of our students who say French is their mother tongue.


Deeply rooted in Montreal and dedicated to its international mission, the University of Montreal ranks each year amongst the world’s top 100 universities. It was founded in 1878, and together with its two affiliated schools, HEC Montréal and Polytechnique Montréal, constitutes the largest centre of higher education and research in Quebec and one of the major centres in North America. The University of Montreal brings together more than 2 700 professors and researchers and welcomes more than 67 000 students.


ÉTS (École de technologie supérieure), part of the Université du Québec network, educates professional engineers and researchers who are renowned for their practical and innovative approach. Out of the 35 engineering schools and faculties in Canada, ÉTS ranks among the best, with upwards of 10 500 students, forty endowed chairs, research centres and laboratories, to which, our professors and graduate students are associated. This synergy of expertise and experience contributes to scientific progress, higher industrial productivity and quality, as well as the training of a highly qualified workforce.
