UBC Women’s Soccer extended its lead atop the Canada West standings with a 2-0 win over the University of Northern British Columbia Timberwolves at Masich Place Stadium in Prince George.

The Thunderbirds limited UNBC to just one shot on target in a suspicious first half. In stoppage time, the T-Birds finally started to carve out some quality chances. Nisa Reehal forced a great save on the post of UNBC goaltender Brooke Molby after a weave down the right wing. A minute later, UBC took the lead, as Jacqueline Tyrer’s outgoing corner was headed in by midfielder Ella Sunde for her second goal of the season.

The goal just before halftime swung the momentum firmly in the T-Birds favor and gave the ‘Birds confidence going into the second half. Reehal’s pace and dribbling proved difficult for the UNBC backline. UBC’s pressure would be rewarded, as Tyrer went from provider to finisher in the 63rd minute, earning a free kick from Katalin Tolnai at the far post to double the T-Birds’ lead.

The T-Birds’ backline was comfortable throughout the 90 minutes, allowing just five shots the entire game. Goaltender Sarah Johns got her fifth clean sheet of the season, punctuated by a superb late save when she stifled Paige Payne’s effort after the UNBC winger was played on goal.

The T-Birds have now won six straight games against UNBC, dating back to September 2018. With Friday’s victory, the T-Birds improved their conference record to 8-0. Their next game is an away game against the Calgary Dinos on September 25th.

SYDNEY, Australia — Canada’s women’s basketball team continues to grow at the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup.

SYDNEY, Australia — Canada’s women’s basketball team continues to grow at the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup.

Bridget Carleton scored 19 points while Kayla Alexander grabbed 11 rebounds, and the Canadians beat Japan 70-56 on Sunday to stay undefeated and earn a berth in the quarterfinals.

“It was a big game for us,” said Carleton. “They’re a tough team, they’re tough to play against, they’re quick, they like to shoot three balls, so it’s a tough game, but it’s really good to get the win.

“And it felt good to see some hits coming for me,” she added with a smile.

Shay Colley added 13 points and seven rebounds, Laeticia Amihere finished with 10 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Canadian No. 4 (3-0). Carleton, a forward for the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx, also had six rebounds.

Maki Takada scored 11 points to lead eighth-placed Japan (1-3), the reigning Olympic silver medalists.

The Canadians will then face Australia (2-1) on Monday, then complete the preliminary round against Mali (0-3) on Tuesday. Their victory on Sunday will allow them to avoid the United States (3-0 in Group A) in the quarters.

“I am very proud of my players because we are growing as a team,” said head coach Victor Lapena. “Just congratulations to my players because today was a masterclass in being in control of the game, and that’s because they are so ready to do it.”

Lapena, a Spaniard and longtime coach of that national program, was hired by Canada Basketball in January after the team’s disappointing first-round elimination at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Canadians, who won bronze at the World Cup twice, in 1979 and 1986, lost to Japan in World Cup qualifying a few weeks after the Olympics.

But the women have continued to fit in since gathering last month in Edmonton for World Cup preparations.

“I think we’re just seeing the benefits of all the time we’ve invested over the past four weeks,” Carleton said. “And every game is a different challenge. Every game, every team plays so differently. So being able to adapt, trusting the coaching staff and what our scouting is on the defensive side, the attacking side, it changes every game, but we wholeheartedly believe in Victor and the coaching staff and what they want us to do.”

“It’s exciting to see the improvement,” she added. “We’re getting used to playing with each other, the way Victor wants to play, and I think it’s going to keep getting better.”

Carleton scored Canada’s first five points after the team went scoreless for the first four minutes. The Canadian defense ignited their offense and Canada took the lead for good, heading into the second set 20-12.

Japan cut Canada’s lead to three points with 4:17 left in the first half, but the Canadians finished with a 13-0 streak to lead 41-25 at the break. Canada’s stifling defense forced Japan to 10 turnovers in the first half.

Canada kept up the momentum in the third quarter, and Carleton’s three-point shot with 1:19 to go propelled the Canadians into the fourth with a 61-39 lead.

“Every game we go to, we think we can win,” Carleton said. “We think we should win. Our target is always to be on the podium, so that’s exactly where we want to be. 3-0. We’ll enjoy it, but rest and recover tonight because we’re in for it. have a (Monday) again against the home crowd in a difficult environment.”

The Canadians opened the World Cup with a 67-60 victory over Serbia, then beat France 59-45.

Australia beat Serbia 69-54 earlier on Sunday.

Both teams struggled to score in a poor first half on Friday. The Canadians quickly took a six-point lead and led 15-9 going into the second quarter.

The Canadians regained their offensive momentum late in the half, finishing with a 9-0 streak in the 1:45 final punctuated by a Bridget Carleton three-pointer. Fields’ layup with 15 seconds left sent Canada into halftime with a 29-17 lead.

The Canadians started the second half with an 8-0 streak, capped by a three-point shot from Colley that put Canada into a 20-point lead. France closed the gap to 13 points late in the third quarter, but Fields’ layup gave Canada a 45-30 lead with one quarter to play.

The French battled to within 11 points at the end of the fourth quarter, but that was as close as they would get.

After Japan, the Canadians will face Australia on Monday and Mali on Tuesday to conclude the preliminary round.

Russia’s plan to annex occupied Ukraine with ‘mock’ referendums condemned by Canada and the West https://scbwicanada.org/russias-plan-to-annex-occupied-ukraine-with-mock-referendums-condemned-by-canada-and-the-west/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 02:17:02 +0000 https://scbwicanada.org/russias-plan-to-annex-occupied-ukraine-with-mock-referendums-condemned-by-canada-and-the-west/ Breadcrumb Links World New Some pro-Kremlin figures have presented the referendums as an ultimatum for the West to accept Russian territorial gains or face all-out war with a nuclear-armed enemy Author of the article: Publication date : Sep 20, 2022 • 26 minutes ago • 4 minute read • Join the conversation A man cycles […]]]>

Some pro-Kremlin figures have presented the referendums as an ultimatum for the West to accept Russian territorial gains or face all-out war with a nuclear-armed enemy

Content of the article

KYIV — Russian-installed leaders in occupied areas of four Ukrainian regions on Tuesday presented plans for referendums on joining Russia, a challenge to the West that could abruptly escalate the war and draw condemnation from the country. Ukraine and its allies.

“The Russians can do whatever they want. It won’t change anything,” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said in response to reporters’ questions at the United Nations.

In a tweet, he added: “Ukraine has every right to liberate its territories and will continue to liberate them whatever Russia has to say.”

US national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Washington “unequivocally” rejects any such referendum, and the European Union and Canada have condemned the plan.

“Canada denounces the “referendums” planned by Russia in the occupied regions of Ukraine. We will never recognize them,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Twitter.

“This is a flagrant violation of international law. It is a new escalation of the war. And that is unacceptable,” he said.

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said the bloc and its member states would not recognize the outcome of the referenda and would consider further action against Russia if the votes were held.

French President Emmanuel Macron and Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda have both used the word “parody” to describe the planned votes.

In a seemingly coordinated move, pro-Russian figures announced referendums for September 23-27 in the provinces of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia, representing about 15% of Ukraine’s territory, an area the size of Hungary.

Russia already considers Luhansk and Donetsk, which together form the Donbass region partially occupied by Moscow in 2014, as independent states. Ukraine and the West consider all parts of Ukraine held by Russian forces to be illegally occupied.

Some pro-Kremlin figures have presented the referendums as an ultimatum for the West to accept Russian territorial gains or face all-out war with a nuclear-armed enemy.

“Encroachment on Russian territory is a crime that allows the use of all forces in self-defense,” Dmitry Medvedev, former Russian president and now hawkish deputy chairman of President Vladimir Putin’s Security Council, said on social media. .

Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of the pro-Kremlin TV channel RT, wrote: “Today a referendum, tomorrow recognition as a member of the Russian Federation, the day after tomorrow strikes on Russian territory become a full-fledged war between Ukraine and NATO and Russia, untying Russia’s hands in all respects.

The United States and NATO allies who have backed Ukraine with arms and other support have said such plebiscites would make no sense.

If the referendum plan ‘weren’t so tragic, it would be funny,’ Macron told reporters in New York, where leaders were arriving for a likely war-dominated UN General Assembly meeting. in Ukraine.

A Nauseda spokesperson from Lithuania quoted him as saying, “These regions are and will be Ukraine, and Russia’s sham referendums are illegal. Lithuania will never recognize them.

Reframing the fighting in occupied territory as an attack on Russia could give Moscow justification for mobilizing its 2 million military reserves. Moscow has so far resisted such a move despite mounting losses in what it calls a limited “special military operation” rather than a war.

Sullivan said Washington was aware of reports that Putin might be considering ordering a mobilization, which Sullivan said would do nothing to undermine Ukraine’s ability to repel Russian aggression.

Russia has said capturing all of Lugansk and Donetsk provinces has been its main objective since defeating its invading forces in March on the outskirts of Kyiv.

It now holds around 60% of Donetsk and had captured almost all of Luhansk by July after slow advances during months of heavy fighting. Those gains are now under threat after Russian forces were driven out of neighboring Kharkiv province this month, losing control of their main supply lines for much of the Donetsk and Luhansk front lines.

The referendums were announced a day after Ukraine said its troops had regained a foothold in Luhansk, the village of Bilohorivka, and were preparing to advance through the province.

Ukraine’s Armed Forces General Staff said on Tuesday evening that its operations in Donetsk, near the towns of Bakhmut and Avdiivka, had caused Russia “significant losses”. But Russia bombed those towns and dozens more in northeastern and southern Ukraine, the general staff said. Reuters could not independently verify this information.

To the south, Russia controls most of Zaporizhzhia but not its regional capital. In Kherson, where the regional capital is the only major city Russia has so far captured intact since the invasion, Ukraine has launched a major counteroffensive.

Unverified footage on social media showed Ukrainian forces in Bilohorivka, which is just 10 km (6 miles) west of the town of Lysychansk, which fell to the Russians after weeks of some of the toughest fighting. intensity of the war in July.

“There will be fights for every inch,” Ukrainian governor of Luhansk Serhiy Gaidai wrote on Telegram. “The enemy is preparing his defence. So we’re not just going to go in.

Pro-Russian officials have said referendums could be held electronically. Russia held a referendum in Crimea eight years ago before declaring the former Ukrainian territory annexed.

In a move aimed at bolstering Russia’s military in Ukraine, Russia’s parliament on Tuesday approved a bill to toughen penalties for a host of crimes including desertion, damage to military property and insubordination, s’ they were committed during military mobilization or combat situations.

Another Henman hat-trick wins TWolves 5-0 over Pronghorns – Prince George Daily News https://scbwicanada.org/another-henman-hat-trick-wins-twolves-5-0-over-pronghorns-prince-george-daily-news/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 23:52:05 +0000 https://scbwicanada.org/another-henman-hat-trick-wins-twolves-5-0-over-pronghorns-prince-george-daily-news/ The return of sublime forward Michael Henman was the spark the UNBC Timberwolves men’s soccer team was looking for, as the TWolves used another fourth-year hat-trick to beat the Lethbridge Pronghorns 5- 0 Sunday in Lethbridge, Alberta.

The return of sublime forward Michael Henman was the spark the UNBC Timberwolves men’s soccer team was looking for, as the TWolves used another fourth-year hat-trick to beat the Lethbridge Pronghorns 5- 0 Sunday in Lethbridge, Alberta.

In the fourth minute, it was the Timberwolves who almost got on the board. Michael Henman stole the ball, beat a defender and played it into the box, finding a booming Tora Omori. The Tokyo product had a good chunk of it, beating Pronghorns keeper Tegan Romaine, but not the post, as the ball bounced.

Six minutes later, UNBC got the opener they were looking for. On a broken play in the box, Anthony Preston won a ball, turned and found Henman’s backdoor for a tap-in behind a helpless Romaine. The goal was Henman’s ninth of the season, good for Canada West and U SPORTS’ first.

The Timberwolves continued to control play, possessing the ball and proving to be the most threatening team early on. From a free kick, Preston found Hagon Kim but his attempt went off the crossbar and kind of stayed away, keeping the game one goal away.

Within 40e minute, Loic Benquet set up a dribbling clinic, working his way through the Lethbridge defence. When Cestas, France’s product shot deflected up, Henman was there to head it down, doubling UNBC’s advantage.

Had it not been for timely defense and sheer luck, the Timberwolves would have built an even more substantial lead, but the visitors found themselves just 2-0 down after 45 minutes. This, despite going over the Horns 12-2 in the half.

In the second half, UNBC kept coming. This time it was Anthony Preston who got on the sheet, beating Romaine for his first of the season, to go along with his three assists in the 2022 campaign.

The Pronghorns would do well to look for an answer, pressing the UNBC back line and gaining some possession in UNBC’s third. However, in the 75e minute, a bit of history for Michael Henman. Taking a through pass from Abou Cissé, Henman beat Romaine for her third of the game and her 11e of the season. The goal was the 17e of his UNBC career, breaking Francesco Bartolillo’s program record for goals scored. Bartolillo set the mark in 69 games played, while Henman broke it in 41 games.

Connor Lewis would tack on a goal in injury time, converting a PK after a handball into the box, scoring his first of the Canada West season.

When the final whistle sounded, UNBC had won 5-0, edging the Horns 23-8 in the game.

As the harvest continues in Canada, Statistics Canada has released its latest report on estimates for many of the crops grown.

This month’s totals came as many farmers are seeing a great end to the growing season, with warm, sunny weather helping to dry out crops.

The latest report takes this into account, as the previous report from August 29 only recorded conditions through July, with the new data extending through the end of August.

Most crops see a slight increase in expected yields thanks to the new report:

  • Maize increases to 14.9 million tonnes from 14.8
  • Soybean yields increase to 6.5 million tonnes, above the 6.4 previously reported.
  • Barley will also register gains with an expected yield of 9.4 million tonnes, higher than the 9.4 million tonnes previously forecast.
  • Oats will increase to 4.7 million tonnes from 4.5 forecast earlier.
  • Wheat is the only crop expected to remain unchanged at 34.7 million tonnes.
  • And canola is expected to fall in the latest report, from 19.5 million tonnes to 19.1 million tonnes.

The biggest takeaway from the report is that yields are still expected to far exceed 2021 yields, thanks to better growing conditions in the Prairies.

At the beginning, there was a lot of humidity, explains John Seay, head of the Report unit.

“Across much of western Canada we have definitely seen more precipitation, certainly in Manitoba and parts of Alberta. Similarly, in eastern Saskatchewan, there has been more precipitation this year, there are dry pockets in the province in the central and southwestern part of the province, so yields could be affected. the low. »

There will be a final yield report once the full harvest is complete, which is currently set to be released on December 2.

Treating patients, guiding students, volunteering their services to various community organizations, the Dalhousie Physiotherapy Clinic (DPC) works hard for everyone.

The clinic has six fully licensed physical therapists (PTs), each holding additional certifications in areas covering concussion rehabilitation, acupuncture, advanced integrated musculoskeletal physiotherapy, disability management, occupational therapy, dry needling, etc. Physiotherapists and staff ensure a welcoming and comfortable environment for all who visit.

All of the clinic’s physiotherapists offer Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) treatments – these relieve dysfunction of the two joints that connect the skull and lower jaw. One in three people experience symptoms of TMJ dysfunction, including eating disorders, numbness along the tongue or face, dizziness, ringing in the ears, and more.

“As far as patient care is concerned, our certifications are increasing,” explains the PT Joseph Ghosn clinic.

Physiotherapists recognize that individualized care is essential in guiding patients through their rehabilitation journey, ensuring equitable service to people of varying abilities. In his treatment of the visually impaired, Ghosn works with patients to turn physical rehabilitation demonstrations into verbal demonstrations.

“DPC staff have tough benchmarks, which really drives the high standards of care I experienced throughout the clinic. In addition to the high standards of the physiotherapists, I find that the facility can meet all my needs,” says Alistair, a patient at the clinic.

Team additions

Samantha Horner and Hailey West are the clinic’s new physiotherapists. Horner arrived in September 2021; West in November 2021. In addition to regularly providing physiotherapy to patients, West will begin offering pelvic health treatments this fall.

Before starting their master’s degrees at Dal, both women worked at the clinic as therapy assistants. They are delighted to be back as fully licensed physiotherapists – their return is a testament to the strength of the clinic’s team.

“The team here is really collaborative. It makes care easier because there is good communication between team members,” says Rhonda Reardon, physiotherapist and clinic director.

Reardon poses with the clinic’s physiotherapists and the clinic’s mascot. Photo: provided.

Mentoring

The clinic hosts student placements each year, offering guidance to those looking to develop their skills. They mentor volunteers and job watchers from high school to post-secondary – if you’re ready to learn, the team is eager to pass on their knowledge. Although the clinic accommodates student placements, all CPD treatments are provided by physiotherapists with master’s degrees, each registered with the Nova Scotia College of Physiotherapists.

While completing their Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Kinesiology, Horner and West volunteered through Dalhousie’s athletic training program. This program is coordinated by Declan O’Brien, the clinic’s full-time therapy assistant. Program participants benefit from training sessions in athletic therapy and injury prevention, professional collaboration with the clinic’s physiotherapists, and coaching/assistant coaching internships on Dal’s sports teams. Participants are often supervised at the clinic, but they do not treat patients.

“Many students say this was one of the main highlights of their undergraduate degree. As a former Dalhousie trainer, I couldn’t imagine where I would be today without the experiences and connections I gained through this program,” says O’Brien.

Sensitization

As evidenced by their extensive treatment and mentoring offerings, the clinic is dedicated to the welfare of the local community. The team volunteers with cultural organizations like Diman Association Canada and youth sports initiatives like the Easter Seals/HRM Learn to Sledge program. Beyond HRM, the clinic is keen to invest in the success of Canadian physiotherapy. This fall, the clinic is hosting Acupuncture Canada’s Dry Needling Level 1 course — their second time this year.

“Because the staff works with student-athletes and the general public, they approach the healing process as equals,” says clinic patient Andrea.

Move

The clinic team is “super excited” to have moved into the thriving Dalhousie Event Centre. Scheduled to open winter 2023/spring 2024, their new location will offer better accessibility, new patient services, an increased number of physiotherapists and double the floor space of their current site in the Dalplex.

current space

The current clinic space has access to Dalplex’s high performance and community gymnasiums, personal training area, field, track and pool. The clinic offers several treatment rooms for patients, private and semi-private, which allow easy access to the main physical rehabilitation area of ​​the clinic.

Reservation

In-person or video appointments at Dal Physiotherapy Clinic can be booked by phone at 902-494-1502 or online. In addition to providing updates on the clinic’s dog, Spot, their Facebook page shares physical therapy tips and regimens, as well as rehab orientation videos. The clinic’s fall hours are Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

After Queen Elizabeth’s death, Indigenous peoples and community leaders in Newfoundland and Labrador are reflecting on her legacy and how — or if — the monarchy plays a role in reconciliation.

Queen Elizabeth visited Newfoundland and Labrador three times, in 1959, 1978 and 1997. Her 1997 visit included stops in St. John’s, Bonavista, North West River and Sheshiatshiu.

Miawpukek Chief Mi’sel Joe recalls Queen Elizabeth II’s ascent to the throne. He was sitting on the beach watching his father and other men repair a boat while discussing the new monarch. He had no idea he would meet her later.

“That memory has stayed with me all these years,” he said.

Joe met Queen Elizabeth when she visited Newfoundland and Labrador in 1997, then met her son, who became King Charles, when he visited St. John’s in May.

Joe said he exchanged pleasantries with Charles.

“I told him I was born when it was a British colony, and he said, ‘I hope you were treated well back then,'” Joe said. “You know, I didn’t have time to answer that.”

Reconciliation was at the center of the 2022 royal tour.

(Paul Chiasson/The Canadian Press)

Indigenous reconciliation was at the center of the 2022 royal tour, with Charles acknowledging – but not apologizing – for residential schools in Canada.

Joe said he counts on the provincial and federal governments – not the royal family – to commit to truth and reconciliation.

“If there is a change [that] comes to us as aboriginals of this province, it will come directly from the government of the day,” he said.

“Every death is painful”

Sheshatshiu Chief Eugene Hart said he would like to see the Royal Family work more with Indigenous communities and First Nations. As for the queen’s inheritance, there was no definitive answer.

“I really don’t know, to be honest with you, what the legacy was there,” he said.

While in Sheshatshiu in 1997, community leaders presented the Queen with a letter condemning colonization and its impacts.

Xavier Penashue, a resident of Sheshatshiu, said he was shocked to learn of the Queen’s passing.

“Every death is painful,” he said.

He also believes the royal family can play a role in reconciliation.

“They can start with, I guess, warning governments to help…indigenous people,” he said.

As many countries are now lifting COVID restrictions, the number of Indian students going to places like the US, Canada, Australia, UK, Ireland and New Zealand was nearly a million at the start of 2022, roughly doubling from pre-pandemic levels, according to the government. and industry estimates.

When 19-year-old Sachin failed to get the grades, he had to get into a good Indian university. Her father, a small trader, took out a loan and dipped into family savings to help her get a Canadian student visa.

The 2 million rupees ($25,035) they raised covered English language tuition provided by Western Overseas, one of dozens of visa consultants in Ambala, about 250 km from New Delhi, who promise a better life through study abroad.

“My dream is to move abroad because I don’t see a future in India,” said Sachin, who uses only one name. He now plans to fly to Canada where he hopes to complete a two-year degree in business management and possibly secure a longer work visa.

While middle-class Indians have for decades sought better prospects in other countries, deteriorating economic conditions are now pushing families in the poorest rural areas like Sachin’s to make big investments to create a new life for their children abroad.

Sachin says his two friends now in Canada earn around C$1,200 ($918) a month through part-time work while studying for degrees.

As many countries are now lifting COVID restrictions, the number of Indian students going to places like the US, Canada, Australia, UK, Ireland and New Zealand was nearly a million at the start of 2022, roughly doubling from pre-pandemic levels, according to the government. and industry estimates.

Consulting firms like Western Overseas offer coaching for English proficiency testing, services for course selection, visa processing, travel and even internships for part-time work.

In Sydney, Catriona Jackson, chief executive of Universities Australia, said more than 76,000 Indian students were now pursuing their studies in Australia, which is expected to accelerate after the two countries signed a bilateral trade pact this year.

Many are applying for short courses in Canada and Australia, driven by increasingly bleak job prospects at home and as Western governments ease immigration requirements to fill university vacancies. and jobs.

According to a 2021 report by Red Seer, a consultancy, the overseas education market is expected to more than double to $80 billion by 2024, from around $30 billion, as global incomes and the aspirations of the middle class are rising.

Rising cost of private education and declining job opportunities in the public sector and industry in India have forced thousands of families to mortgage property or take out bank loans for college education. abroad, visa consultants said.

Not even a 7% drop in the Indian rupee this year has deterred families from shelling out the fees.

“The return on investment is very, very good,” said Piyush Kumar, IDP Education’s South Asia manager.

The Melbourne-based company sends Indian students to English-speaking countries, including Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

The company plans to open 27 offices in small towns across India this year, encouraged by a more than 90% increase in registrations after two years of the pandemic, he said.

STUNNING PERSPECTIVES

Several overseas universities and their local partners are hosting education fairs in expensive five-star hotels and through virtual sessions in small towns to entice students.

At one such event, more than 500 students recently gathered to explore opportunities with more than 40 universities from Australia and Canada at a luxury hotel in Chandigarh, about 40 km from Ambala.

Gagandeep Singh, a small businessman from nearby Dera Bassi, came with his daughter, who has received offers from some Australian universities.

“I focused on the University of Canberra, where my sister did a master’s degree in pharmacy,” said Jashandeep Kaur, Singh’s daughter, citing women’s safety and career prospects as her main considerations.

Improved internet access in recent years has allowed visa consultants to reach new markets in rural areas, in addition to traditional advertising channels.

“We publish our success stories on Facebook and other platforms,” said Bhupesh Sharma, marketing manager of Western Overseas, which has expanded to nine major cities in northern India and sent nearly a thousand students abroad.

“We aim to send around 5,000 students abroad this year,” said Pradeep Baliyan, its founder, adding that they have also opened branches in Australia and Canada offering placement services.

With more than 300 million students in school and a growing number of applicants for higher education, India is struggling to provide enough university places and jobs for its young people.

The outlook for women is particularly bleak, with a participation rate of just 25%, the lowest among major economies. This, coupled with the elimination of millions of salaried jobs in recent years, has driven many Indians away.

ATTRACTION FACTOR

Indeed, many Western countries cannot reopen fast enough after two painful years of pandemic travel restrictions that have starved their economies of foreign labor and universities of fee-paying international students.

In particular, the continued absence of Chinese students, with Beijing’s strict zero COVID border policy still in place, has made Indian students even more important and intensified competition in the global education sector for their fees.

“The ease of obtaining permanent residency has become a big draw for Indian students rushing to Canada,” said Rahul Oswal, the founder of consultancy Wisdom Overseas.

Compared to the UK and US, Canada’s postdoctoral work and residency programs are much more flexible, he added.

Canadian universities are partnering with international consultants such as ApplyBoard and IDP to tap into the growing demand for foreign education in outback India.

“We have a partnership with universities on the one hand and on the other hand linked to local immigration services in India,” said David Tubbs, director of marketing communications at ApplyBoard, which runs an online platform for recruitment. of international students.

Those agencies hold about eight to 10 shows a year, including a big conference for the busy September back-to-school season and one in May, he said. A recent recruiters’ workshop in New Delhi attracted more than 1,100 people.

According to ApplyBoard, Canadian universities are more affordable than the UK, Australia, and the US. Annual Canadian undergraduate overseas tuition fees averaged C$32,019, while graduate tuition fees averaged C$19,252, Tubbs said.

NO MORE IRON RICE BOWL

Despite the promises, the transition to a new life in the West is neither easy nor guaranteed.

Many visas are currently stuck in limbo in places like Australia as immigration officials struggle to clear a backlog of applications made during the pandemic.

The costs of studying and living in countries like Canada, Australia and the United States are also extremely high for low-income Indians.

“It’s a huge amount, paying three times the amount a domestic student pays is a major problem we face, especially when converted into Indian currency,” said Nitika Mishra, a broadcasting student at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. .

Yet even with the rupee around record highs, it’s a risk that many Indians remain willing to take.

Each year, Ambala, a colonial-era British Army cantonment, typically attracts hundreds of young people into the military with the prospect of lifelong employment.

However, recent amendments to the Indian Armed Forces recruiting scheme have reduced benefits and tenure, downgrading one of the few opportunities for social mobility in the country of 1.4 billion people.

It sparked violent protests in some places in June and forced thousands to reconsider their careers.

“I prepared for two years and had appeared for a written test to join the army. But now I don’t see any incentive to join,” said Vijay Chauhan, 18, who is studying English. at Western Overseas, where Sachin also obtained his visa. preparation.

“There is no choice but to leave India.”

CALGARY – A field hockey dynasty. That’s what the Victoria Vikes are aiming for this year as they chase their fourth consecutive Canada West title. The team dominated last season, going a perfect 8-0 in the regular season before winning the CW and U SPORTS Championship banners.

Led by the reigning CW and U SPORTS Player of the Year, the Vikes will again be looking to set the tone for this season as they also aim for their fourth consecutive national gold medal.


In their path stand the UBC Thunderbirds, the winningest team in Canada West history. The school will be keen to retain this title by dethroning the Vikes. The Thunderbirds have 25 conference titles to their name, while the Vikes have 22. UBC is aiming to return to its historic form led by a strong defensive core with several key midfield additions.


With two strong teams already on the field, the Calgary Dinos will be looking to fight their way into the win column this year after being victimized for several seasons by the Vikes and T-Birds.


It all starts Saturday, when Victoria travels to Calgary for the season opener at 11 a.m. The two will face off again on Sunday at the same time. UBC will enter the game the following weekend, as they travel to Calgary on September 17-18, with both games also scheduled for 11 a.m.
