This study, facilitated by university and college student service professionals, provides the direct views and lived reality of international graduates of our education system. CBIE advocates for improvements in policies and practices vis-à-vis international students and over the years has been successful in working with federal government departments, especially Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), to achieve changes that both make this country a more attractive venue for students from abroad as well as enable our society to fully benefit from their skills. The following appendices are included: (1) Web-Based Survey; (2) Focus Group Protocol; (3) Employer Survey; (4) Good Practices: Sample of Letter for Employer to Use When Making an International Graduate a Job Offer; and (5) Good Practices: Sample Letter from Institution for Student Applying for Employment (Sensitization of Employer).
