EVENT DESCRIPTION:
The Consulate General of Canada in Boston is organizing its annual Canadian "College Fair" this fall. Guidance counselors, students and parents will be invited to attend to maximize participation. Each institution will have a table and space for a representative(s) and promotional materials. Past fairs in Boston have attracted from 50-100 visitors.
The Consulate has identified and secured a venue in Newton, MA and will promote the event through its counselor contacts at local high schools and local Canadian university and college alumni contacts. Participating institutions are requested to reach out to their contacts in the area to maximize attendance.

The cost of this event will be shared jointly. Each institution is requested to contribute $250CDN to help cover the cost of room rental and hospitality. Individual institutions will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation.
The New England Association for College Admission Counselling (NEACAC) will also be holding counselor fairs in the area in the days surrounding the fair in Worcester, MA and Durham, NH. For more information, please visit http://www.neacac.org/cf_fall.cfm .

Edu-Canada market reports are available at Edu-Canada PRO .

Further to the Brand Use Eligibility Policy jointly established by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) and the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC), post-secondary education institutions are invited to consult the provincial lists of eligible institutions on the Brand extranet at http://www.imagine.cmec.ca/en/zone/ . If the institution is on the list, it is eligible to participate in the event. If it is not on the list, it is not eligible to participate unless there is clear and written consent of the province/territory where the institution is located.
In order to avoid processing delays, Canadian brand eligible institutions are requested to register for education promotion events using their business/legal name, as it appears on the respective provincial/territorial brand eligibility list.
Banks, airlines and insurance companies offering services to students may participate as sponsors and will be situated in the non-branded area.
Education or immigration agents are not eligible to participate in the event, with the sole exception of agents designated by an eligible institution. In that case, agents are responsible to the institution that engaged their services and must adhere to all event guidelines and agent policy.
