Canada reception at NAFSA 2017, sponsored by guard.me

Earlier this summer, guard.me International Insurance partnered with EduCanada and Canadian institutions to host the annual Canada Reception at NAFSA. More than 400 delegates from around the world got a taste of Canadian culture at the famous Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles.

The evening opened with a traditional bagpipe performance, followed by a welcome photo opp with a real Royal Canadian Mountie. Guests enjoyed complimentary Canadian beverages and appetizers, including Canada’s favourite cocktail, the Classic Caesar (made with real Clamato juice), and Quebec’s ever-popular poutine, made with French fries, cheese curds and gravy. A Canadian DJ spun an all-Canadian playlist that included The Tragically Hip, A Tribe Called Red and Céline Dion.

Every year, guard.me supports numerous events at the NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo, which is the largest gathering of peers and experts in the field of international education. In addition to the Canada Reception, guard.me also hosts a Partnership Breakfast for institutions and sponsors the a2 Turkish Night and the BMI Brazil Party.
