As a leading academic gateway for Latin American students, we aim to position Canada as a destination of choice for sponsored students across Latin America.

CALDO is a consortium of nine leading Canadian research universities dedicated to the development of international education partnerships between Canada and Latin America. We provide customized assistance to Latin American graduate and doctoral students who are financed by agencies in their home country to apply to our research-intensive universities.

Unlike other educational agencies in Canada, we focus on building relationships to enhance higher education mobility, research cooperation, and capacity building. We also work closely with universities and academic organizations in Latin America to match students with programs in Canada that best suit their research interests.

Currently, CALDO has signed agreements in six Latin American countries: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay. Most agreements are signed with governments, government agencies, and university organizations, and their focus is on research collaboration and graduate student mobility.
