Company Profile

Mission Statement

“Illume Consulting aims to provide promotional opportunities for Canadian Education Institutions abroad, in addition to directly disseminating information to prospective foreign students about their options to study in Canada.”

Company Profile

Illume Consulting is an educational services company based in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Since its inception in 2004, Illume Consulting has been providing various services to Canadian post-secondary institutions and school boards (elementary and secondary), as well as to foreign students abroad.  Illume provides representation in various capacities to different institutions in key locations around the world, where school boards and post-secondary schools find it lucrative to recruit international students, but may not have representation or do not travel to these locations for recruitment.

In particular, Illume focuses on, and has a strong presence in, continental Africa, the Middle East, India, China, and other parts of Asia.  Stringent direct marketing standards, screening of potential students on-site in their home countries, and consulting of potential students about realistic options for them to apply to Canadian schools has established Illume as a dependable educational services company for both the institutions it represents and the students it brings to study in Canada.  At the present time, Illume Consulting represents the following institutions as Partners (P) and Affiliated (A) Schools:

Project Work

Illume Consulting also organizes various projects to further global interaction between education providers, government representatives and prospective students.  This includes educational opportunities for representatives from abroad to learn firsthand about the services provided by Canadian Institutions during visits to Canada.  As well, Illume has participated in project work in establishing teacher-training programs, 2+1 programs for high school students and 2+2 programs for universities.  As well, Illume is working towards establishing new programs, such as university exchanges (professors and/or graduate student instructors) in Africa and other parts of the world. 

Working with Agents

Illume Consulting builds valuable relationships with agents abroad.  Its aim is to match the speciality and focus of the wide variety of agencies to the specific needs of the Institutions that Illume Consulting represents.  Illume consulting also manages the progress and productivity of its many global partners in order to ensure a “best-fit” for each institution.  For visa processing and health care needs, the use of agents is a key part of Illume’s work abroad.  However, all recruiting is accomplished by direct recruitment – on the ground in face-to-face interviews with students in their home countries.


Methods of Recruitment

  • Direct Recruitment:  Illume Consulting representatives inform the students and parents directly of their educational opportunities in Canada.  Extensive interviews are done to ensure that only appropriate applicants are selected to match the institutions they wish to attend.  Also, Illume Consulting receives applications on behalf of the Education institutions and forwards the paperwork and application fee to these organizations once they have been received.
  • Recruitment through Agencies:  Illume Consulting works as a liaison between the agency and the education institution and oversees the application process of students recruited by Illume Consulting partners.
  • Recruitment at Fairs:  Illume Consulting provides representation at international education fairs in a variety of countries throughout the year.  These representatives are able to receive on-the-spot applications for the institutions that are represented.
