  • Canadian cultural communities seeking to assist students from similar backgrounds to settle in Canada and to enrich their members’ experiences with the addition of newcomers bringing fresh ideas and enthusiasm from their countries of origin; and

  • Canadian Consulate Offices in the Middle East, who can assist our students to obtain their study permits as quickly as possible;

  • Cultural, educational and student communities in the Levant eager to take advantage of  the opportunities offered by AST to its young people and looking forward to benefit from the skills, knowledge and experience they will have gained in Canada upon their return.
