Cultural Affairs and Academic Relations

Cultural and academic cooperation represents one of the most dynamic aspects of the bilateral relationship between Canada and Mexico.

Canadian artists and performers have become increasingly prominent on the Mexican cultural scene, and personal exchanges and collaborations between artists and cultural personalities are becoming ever more frequent.

Academic and cultural ties are essential components of our relationship. There are over 300 MOUs between Canadian and Mexican higher education institutions, which mainly facilitate academic exchanges, as well as a number of MOUs between Canadian education associations and Mexican government bodies. As a priority market under the International Education Strategy, Mexico is also Canada’s 11th largest source country for international students globally and the 2nd largest in Latin American with approximately 20,000 Mexican students in Canada in 2018. Academic and cultural ties are essential components of our relationship.
