    Congratulations to Greg and Dean. International Students bring diversity to the Comox Valley and contribute to the local economy in many ways. It’s good business.

    I’m contributing to my Grandchildren’s Registered Education Savings plan-glad I can. This creates wealth for the Financial Sector and those employed there.

    I only hope that in 5-10 years, there is still a space for them at North Island College or any other Canadian Post Secondary Institution of their choice .

    Lets hope the International student program benefits all -including local students, in the future.
