Canada: SchoolFinder Group acquires Recruit in Canada
Toronto-based SchoolFinder Group has acquired Recruit in Canada and its Study and Go Abroad education fairs.
Study and Go Abroad Fairs are large international university fairs aimed at students and adults considering post-secondary studies overseas, as well as opportunities for volunteering, internships and work abroad programmes. They have been held in cities across Canada since 1993.
The SchoolFinder Group offers services to help schools and organisations reach students, including digital marketing, qualified lead generation, drip email marketing, events and fairs, software and consulting.
Chris Wilkins, founder and chief executive of The SchoolFinder Group, said: “Integrating Recruit in Canada into the SchoolFinder Group provides a full suite of solutions to colleges and universities; from digital marketing and lead generation to education fairs with in-person and virtual touch points. The Study and Go Abroad fairs will provide an opportunity to help more students find the right school.”
Anita Kuehnel, director at Recruit in Canada, said: “We have been collaborating with the SchoolFinder Group for many years. The services provided by both our two businesses are very complementary, and this acquisition is almost a natural evolution of the business.”
Recruit in Canada is based in Nanaimo, British Columbia.
