September 13, 2012 – The Canada China Business Council (CCBC) has signed a partnership agreement with the Alberta Government to participate in their “Alberta Abroad” program, launched today in Beijing by Premier Alison Redford. This program arranges for highly skilled and motivated post-secondary graduates to work abroad for select international organizations like the CCBC, on a short-term basis.
“I’m very pleased that young Albertans will have the opportunity to gain work experience in China, one of the fastest growing economies in the world,” said Premier Redford. “They will gain valuable skills while also helping to deepen Alberta and China’s dynamic cultural and economic relationship.”
“The benefits of this unique and innovative program are two-fold,” said Peter Harder, President of the Canada China Business Council. “Graduates gain valuable experience working abroad, and our organization is able to tap into the skills and knowledge of these post-secondary students to whom we may not have had access.”
CCBC is the country’s leading Canada-China bilateral trade and investment facilitator, catalyst and advocate. We provide a wide range of member services, business intelligence, and high-level connections for enterprises of all sizes in Canada and China.
Alberta Abroad is a program of the Government of Alberta that provides competitive placements for Albertans aged 19 to 30 who have graduated from a recognized diploma or degree program from an Alberta post-secondary institution within the last two years.
