In recent years, the quality of education in Canada has been questioned on several fronts. Some educators, employers, and others, have expressed concern that it has been eroded, and that the existing systems are not adequate to maintain this nation's competitive position in the modern technological world.

The OECD has declared that "internationalization," a process of integrating an international dimension into university functions, should be the new emphasis in higher education. Among other things, this process calls for curriculum changes to incorporate the experiences and knowledge sources of other countries and give students the opportunity to become "globally literate citizens." In recent years, some Canadian universities have been working toward this end.
