加拿大首屈一指的国际教育奖（CPIEA）是世界上首例此类奖项。 CPIEA在2012年开始了一场全行业的革命，今天继续履行其使命，即表彰以教育为使命的人们。 CPIEA致力于表彰和赞扬那些超出学生期望的国际招聘机构，并为它们对国际教育行业以及受益于该行业的学生的积极影响而感到自豪。
“My vision for the CPIEAs has been to shine a spotlight on those agencies who work from a foundation of leadership, innovation and integrity. It’s life changing for parents when their children leave home to study overseas. They depend on trustworthy agents for their children’s well-being, and in return, those trustworthy agents deserve to be appreciated and recognized. This is why I innovated the CPIEAs.”
• Allow potential applicants time to develop their business strategies, ensure requirements are met, and then apply.
• Maintain the exclusivity of winning one of the most prestigious awards the industry has to offer.
• Allow the CPIEA Organizing Committee, the CPIEA Executive Committee, and the volunteer CPIEA
Judges the time to ensure all applications are processed according to strict guidelines and criteria.
Since 2007, AlyRajab.com, the founder and chairman of CLLC.ca, has been convinced that the international education industry, specifically the language sector, needed a framework to differentiate the good from the great to help shape the future of the industry.
Aly had always believed that International recruiters and agencies have been a crucial link in bringing international students overseas, so he decided that the framework had to serve them, be free of charge to apply (but with a rigorous application process), and would enhance any applicant’s integrity.
In 2008, he had approached a few industry leaders to help create such an awards framework to help standardize and improve the international educational agency business worldwide. Support however, remained limited, allowing Aly the freedom to create an awards framework that he knew would best serve international agencies.
The following year, Aly’s dream to enhance the quality of the international education industry pushed him to go even farther, leading him to outline a two milestone plan covering the following two decades. In 2010, CLLC.ca became the Innovator Sponsor for the first decade milestone.
As CLLC was directly involved in the sponsorship, it allowed it to operate within the awards, separate from the judging process. As the Innovator Sponsor, CLLC began implementing promotional award strategies and promoting the first CPIEA’s worldwide (initially named “PABA’s”).
From 2012 to 2022, the CPIEA’s awarded 65 agencies and accomplished the first milestone, bringing to the industry a community of 65 quality agencies that will support the second milestone, which includes awarding another 120 quality agencies over the following 10 years.
From 2022 to 2032, the awards will be held annually instead of bi-annually. This shift will include awarding 185 quality agencies by the end of the second milestone.
The CPIEA’s seek to gain a larger community and a more robust industry presence. Their mission consists of a wave of game-changing products and academic programs to help shape the winners’ future and the entire industry.
