“The government of Canada’s Department of Global Affairs, recently selected President of the Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI), Dr. Robert W. Robertson, as a scholar in the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP).
Co-organized by the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE), the ELAP scholarship is designed to support the development of human capital and the next generation of leaders in the Americas, while strengthening the linkages between post-secondary institutions in Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Moreover, the purpose of the ELAP is to promote democratic governance, peace and security and prosperity in the region. In addition to The Bahamas, countries participating include Jamaica, Belize, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Panama, Uruguay, Peru and Cuba.
As a part of the scholarship, Dr. Robertson visited a number of community colleges in Canada. One of the visits was to Holland College in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. There are more than 50 Bahamian students attending Holland College.
