Canada wants Brazilians and offers 50,000 BRL scholarships in technology courses

CCTB, Canadian College of Technology and Business, a top school of technology in Vancouver, province of British Columbia, Canada, is offering scholarships of approximately R$50,000, or CAD$12,000, in technology courses. The promotion is being led in Brazil by SEDA Intercmbios, which will host a free online event on July 28, starting at 7:00 p.m., to answer questions from interested parties.

The programs receiving grants are the Full-Stack Development and Cybersecurity Risk Management programs, which have been increased from CA$36,000 to CA$24,000. In addition to these, there are smaller scholarships for courses in software quality assurance engineering, user experience and interactive design, data engineering and analysis, digital marketing, business administration and hospitality and tourism, ranging from CAD $7,500 to CAD $24,000. And, even better, up to 75% of the course fees can be paid directly to the school, while the student studies and works in the country, receiving Canadian dollars.

As there is a great demand for this type of professional in Canada, the school facilitates access to Brazilian students. “All courses allow students to work 20 hours per week during school hours and 40 hours per week during holidays. In the short course, the student can work more than 2,400 hours”, explains Erik Barbosa, product manager at SEDA.

Students are still eligible for the BC PNP Tech – British Columbia Provincial Nomination Program, a provincial immigration program that allows students to immigrate to Canada through work experience in the field of technology. CCTB students can fill 11 of the 29 positions (CNP) eligible for the provincial program, which can be viewed at the link: In many cases, students gain the work experience necessary to apply for the program while studying.

The admissions process is simple and the level of English required is intermediate. Anyone who does not feel confident can take a language course before starting the program. “Those who love the technology field and are considering a career with many possibilities abroad should take advantage of this opportunity to study and work in Canada”, emphasizes the CEO of SEDA Intercmbios, Helicon Alvares. Those interested should register for the free event at
