Thompson Rivers University (TRU) is on the top of the world when it comes to global sustainability initiatives and achievements. It was unveiled in the Indigenous Art Gallery Foyer in the Brown Family House of Learning that TRU was recognized as the world-wide leader in encouraging sustainability in all aspects of higher education.

TRU is currently the highest-rated university in the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education’s global Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS). TRU was joined by Colorado State University, Stanford University, the University of New Hampshire and the University of California, Irvine as other institutions to receive the platinum rating. Helping earn the platinum status with an 88.31 percent score was the continued development of the campus compost and zero waste initiatives, the injection of sustainability into curriculums across many programs, the use of ride sharing and Ebikes, and the creation of energy-saving projects, to name a few.

New Zealand Education Think New

New Zealand Government has announced some changes in post study work rights this month and the move is well received by the New Zealand education aspirants and those who are already studying there. The highlights of the announcement area:

Three-year open work visa for international degree students: It will enable international degree students to apply and consolidate the skills acquired from studying and make an invaluable addition to their curriculum vitae. These changes further position New Zealand as a world-leading study destination for international students wanting to pursue a global career. A streamlined post-study career path for high quality international students builds on New Zealand's Number 1 ranking by the Economist Intelligence Unit as the best country in the world for preparing students for the future.

Changes to New Zealand's immigration settings are: • To provide a three-year post-study open work visa for degree Level 7 (bachelor degree) or above qualifications.
• To remove employer-assisted post-study work visas at all levels
• To provide a one-year post-study open work visa for students studying Level 4 to 6 and non-degree Level 7 qualifications. Students at this level outside of Auckland will be given an additional year (a two-year post-study open work visa) provided study is completed by December 2021. After that point, the entitlement reverts back to a one-year post-study open work visa
• An additional year will be given to Graduate Diploma graduates working towards registration with a professional or trade body.
• International students studying Level 8 qualifications in an area on New Zealand's Long-Term Skills Shortage list may bring their partner (eligible for an open work visa) and dependent children (eligible for fee-free domestic schooling).
• These settings will not impact current post-study work visa holders or international students.
• Through these changes, New Zealand wants to ensure student wellbeing and ensure post-study pathways contribute the skills and qualifications New Zealand needs.
• The changes align with the New Zealand Government's International Education Strategy 2018-2030, which sets a path for the future of New Zealand's international education sector.

Quebec set to overhaul immigration system in bid to address labour force shortages. There were 462,000 job vacancies across Canada in the first quarter of 2018, with Quebec reporting the largest year-over-year increase for the three-month period, according to new figures from Statistics Canada.

Job vacancies in Quebec were up by 25,000 in the first quarter of 2018, an increase of 37 per cent over the first three months of 2017. The new data show job vacancies rising across most provinces, industrial sectors and occupational groups compared to the first quarter of 2017.

Job vacancies rose in eight Canadian provinces and Canada’s three territories, with Quebec and British Columbia posting the greatest increases.

This was the seventh consecutive quarter to show a year-over-year increase in the number of job vacancies in Quebec, with vacancies in the manufacturing and accommodation and food services industrial sectors increasing the most. Montreal was the economic region in Quebec that posted the greatest increase in job vacancies (+8,700) during the quarter.

Quebec’s unemployment rate was 5.5 per cent for the quarter, compared to 6.2 per cent in the first three months of 2017.

Quebec’s Liberal government has estimated that more than one million jobs will need to be filled by 2024, and says immigration has a major part to play in filling this gap.
