This is one of several recommendations from a panel set up by the Canadian government; from 239,000 students this year to 450,000 in 2022. And this includes students in all grade levels, from kindergarten to college and university.

Canadians go International also

The panel also advised the government to create 50,000 positions each year for Canadian students to go abroad, to further their education and cultural knowledge and experience.

The report entitled, International Education, a Key Driver of Canada’s Future Prosperity, was released last week. It analyses and explains the benefits, both economic and cultural, to all of Canada.

It’s been two months since the Algo Centre Mall, in Elliot Lake, Ont. collapsed, and Captain Pamela Stanger, with the Salvation Army, says she and her family still feel the effects of the tragedy. “It’s been traumatic,” she says.

The mall was the main gathering place in the town of about 13,500 people. On June 23, part of the mall roof, which doubled as a parking garage, collapsed, killing 2 people and injuring 20 others.

Gilda Salomone speaks with Capt. Pamela Stanger, from the Salvation Army, with Larry Parker, president of the Renaissance Seniors’ Centre of Elliot Lake and with Todd Stencill, general manager of the Eliott Lake Chamber of Commerce.
