[India], Feb 26 (ANI): Leading consultancy firm catering to students wishing to study abroad, ESS Global, on Monday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Rising Phoenix International, a Canada based one-stop platform dedicated to improving the quality of educational experiences for students and institutions.
Earlier last week, when Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had visited India, he had said that Canada should become the number one destination for Indian students wanting to study abroad. With this deal, ESS Global will become one of Rising Phoenix International's premier partners to help launch their operations in India.
The MoU between the parties was signed at the Indian Business Forum on February 20 2018, organised by the Indo-Canadian Business Chambers.
"We are excited about working with ESS Global. Their extensive reach in India and in other markets and their operating philosophy are a perfect complement to our student-centered focus. Our Canadian institutional partners are looking forward to welcoming students from India. Quebec and Canada are the ideal places to study. Canada consistently ranking in the top five education systems in the world and it is our mission to share that excellence with the world," said president and CEO, Rising Phoenix International, Caroline Mastantuono.
"Montreal and Quebec are fantastic destinations for higher education, especially for Indian students. The academic excellence of Quebecois higher education, the diverse and welcoming environment of the beautiful city of Montreal, and the relative accessibility of these educational opportunities mean that Indians should be availing them more freely. We are extremely excited to be partnering with Rising Phoenix International to spread the good word amongst Indian students about education in Quebec," said chairman and MD, ESSGlobal, Gurinder Bhatti.
Rising Phoenix International, which represents various higher education, professional training and secondary and primary institutions in Canada for international students, is looking to increase their presence in India through partnerships, to spread awareness about the exciting opportunities that can be found throughout Canada with major focus on the province of Quebec.

ESS Global, through its partnership with Rising Phoenix International, will be promoting programs in the fields of health and social services, Information Technology, business and financial services, engineering and environment, beauty care and well-being, arts and design, hospitality and services alongside vocational training programs designed to help students enter the labour market.
