Canadian Alumni Network in Vietnam

VietnamFlagThe Embassy and Consulate General of Canada in Vietnam are building a Canadian Alumni Network that will bring together Vietnamese from all walks of life who have one important link: a Canadian education. They are hoping that Vietnamese alumni from BC institutions will join this network to help strengthen the important people-to-people links between Canada and Vietnam and encourage others to choose Canada as their study destination. The Canadian Alumni Network in Vietnam will hold its inaugural events in March 2016, in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Details will be forthcoming. If you are interested in participating in this new and exciting network, let them know by sending an email message to HOCHI.Alumni@international.gc.ca.
