The International Education Framework recognizes the importance of international education to Alberta’s future economic and social success. It provides a roadmap to ensure international education activities are strategic, integrated and effective, mutually beneficial, high-quality, sustainable, and support Government of Alberta priorities and objectives.

Developed and released in 2009, the framework's purpose is to encourage a coordinated and strategic approach to international education activities in support of Alberta's Adult Learning System and Alberta Innovates. Priority directions outlined in the framework were developed to support the following outcomes:
