Brunei Darussalam and Canada will continue to build closer relationships in the education sector. The High Commissioner of Canada to Brunei Darussalam stated the matter at the University of Toronto National Biology Competition 2019 Award ceremony, yesterday morning. According to Her Excellency Jeanette Stovel, there has been an increase in the number of Bruneian students choosing Canada as the destination to further their studies. Touching on the competition, Her Excellency is delighted that since 2002, Bruneian students have continued to demonstrate interest in the competition.
Out of 256 Sixth Form students from six government schools and colleges who participated in the prestigious competition, only thirty students received the award.
