International Youth Canada

About us

International Youth is a not-for-profit organization established to provide programs to support international learners before, during, and after their studies in Canada. 

The need is great, the purpose is strong and the resources are available.

Adding to the informal programs started by Mr. Jerin Raj (8 years ago), International Youth, served by an advisory board has developed a coordinated outreach strategy to serve the needs of international learns from all parts of the world.

The pursuit of education is a universal and basic right of every citizen of the world.  Students from all parts of the world travel to other nations to seek post-secondary learning. 

Canada, especially, has a high standard of quality education which is open to students from any country.  With an established system of institutions (colleges and universities), Canada has the capability to, and does, deliver educational programs in a wide range of disciplines at all levels, including undergraduate and graduate.

There are more than 600,000 international students studying in Canada.  The group is represented by a wide variety of nationalities, inherent cultures, language differences, and exposure to how things work in Canada. 

Because their study journey is quite expensive for them and their families, both physical and social supports should be available to them.  This will result in a quality experience for the learners, as they navigate the system to build a career and life for themselves.


International Youth Canada envisions a future where every international student in Canada not only succeeds academically but also thrives in their personal and professional lives. We aspire to create a supportive ecosystem that celebrates diversity, fosters cross-cultural understanding, and equips students with the skills to become global citizens and leaders. Our vision is to be the guiding light for international students, ensuring their Canadian experience is enriching, fulfilling, and impactful.


Dedicated to the unique journey of international students in Canada, International Youth Canada (IYC) is on a mission to provide tailored programs and unwavering support. We aim to empower international students with the tools, resources, and community connections they need for successful academic pursuits, personal growth, and seamless integration into Canadian society.
