There is a growing interest in international education and it is identified as one of the significant trends in post-secondary education. While there are a variety of rationales for engagement in international education, there appears to be a growing focus on international education in terms of its economic potential in developing a prosperous society. In response, there are a number of voices calling for a greater focus on the educational experience of students and the creation of learning environment that encourages a more informed, engaged and compassionate citizen of the world. Governments can and do play an important role in supporting and strengthening international education. Through this case study, the provincial government‟s support of international education in Alberta is examined, and a framework is identified that supports a broad and deep approach that enhances the academic mission of international education
