Canadian International Academic Services was established in 2003 by Ms. Gursharan Kaur Kandra and was incorporated in 2010. Ms. Kandra, CEO and President of CIAS, is a renowned social worker who has been actively involved in international student recruitment since 2008. In the last five years we have introduced North American education to aspiring students in India.

CIAS is an agency dealing with recruitment of international students. Canadian International Academic Services Inc. was initiated to bring globalization of education, by providing students across the world with easy access to quality education from North American colleges and universities. We provide opportunities to study at some of the best universities and colleges in USA, Canada, UK and Europe.

We are not only a recruitment agency, but we also provide settlement services to international students with the help of Canadian Intercultural Association of Students (CIAOS) a non-profit organization, inclusive of post-landing services, job placements, business placements, and arrangement of co-op placements. We not only recruit students but we are also working on facilitating joint ventures. We also assist students in filling all kinds of forms i.e. extension of study permit, extension of work permit, extension of visa, multiple entry visa forms etc.


CIAS was established with a mission to bring world-class education closer to students coming from the developing countries. In its endeavor to promote education, CIAS works towards bringing international education to the doorstep of the students.
