Canada’s Camosun College

Camosun College in British Columbia recently signed a pathway agreement with Miriam College in the Philippines.

The MoU signed between the Ontario institution and its Egyptian counterpart, Al-Ahly CIRA Company for Educational Services, has been recently endorsed in Cairo by Seneca president David Agnew and Karim Saada, chairman of the board of directors at Al-Ahly Capital Holding Company.

Al-Ahly Capital Holding Company is the part of the joint venture with private education company CIRA Education.

David Agnew said, “We are delighted to be working with CIRA to offer more opportunities to Egyptian youth to further their education. We will bring to Cairo our decades of experience in high-quality polytechnic education that builds great careers for our graduates.”

Karim Saada mentioned that the agreement will support to develop CIRA’s strategy that hopes to contribute to an educational system that “provides equal opportunities for every Egyptian student to obtain a distinguished educational experience”.

Hassan El-Kalla of CIRA Education added saying, “CIRA Education is keen to improve the quality of education in Egypt by supporting projects that aim to develop the educational system, especially with the need for the education sector to support the private sector to provide a high-quality education level for all segments of Egyptian society in various sectors with specialisations that support the labor market with its actual needs.”

Mohamed Ayman Ashour, Egyptian minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, also present in the signing ceremony, appreciated the agreement as a forward step on the path towards accomplishing the ambitious Egypt Vision 2030.

Speaking on the partnership between the Filipino institution and Camosun, Lane Trotter, the president said “We’re very excited to be bringing Camosun programs to the world, with Miriam College.”
