Story of success

Our group is considered as the sole provider of Canadian education in Egypt since the date of establishment in 1997. With offices in Cairo, Dubai & Toronto we have now over 10,000 candidates enrolled at our entities not covering the trainees. We currently run 3 different models all of which are providing Canadian degrees whether bachelor or postgraduate degrees. These degrees are offered in collaboration with our Canadian partners such as Cape Breton University, University of Prince Edward Island, etc.


Dr. Magdy Elkady is the president of Canwell Educational Consultants, the holding company responsible for bringing Canadian tertiary education to Egypt. Dr. Elkady is an Egyptian-Canadian who achieved his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Asiut University. As president of the Canadian International College (CIC) since its opening in 2004, he encouraged the introduction of cutting-edge educational methodologies at both the New Cairo and Sheik Zayed Campuses. His mission is to create a healthy environment for students to excel academically and socially, thus producing well-rounded graduates who achieve success in local and international markets. In acknowledgment of his efforts in the field of education, Dr. Elkady was honored with his LL.D from Cape Breton University. Dr. Elkady’s latest accomplishment is the establishment of Universities of Canada in Egypt (UCE). Located in the New Administrative City, this new campus promises the continuation of Dr. Elkady’s legacy of bringing Canadian educational excellence to Egypt.


Over the years we were able to offer various opportunities to students in Egypt and the Middle East. With our educational programs, we not only offer the opportunity of graduating with Canadian degree at their home country but also offer travel opportunities to Canada to continue their studies there with our partners. Each of our models offers quality education whether by programs taught in Egypt by Canadian professors such as the MBA provided by University of Prince Edward Island, or by the transfer and exchange opportunities offered by the Canadian International College in Egypt where students can continue their studies in Canada for a year or more.
We are bringing the Canadian classroom experience closer to students in Egypt & the Middle East through our collaboration with a consortium of Canadian universities in our latest project Universities of Canada in Egypt. This model will act as an international branch campus in its role, by attracting several programs from different Canadian universities such as the University of Prince Edward Island. UCE is located in the new administrative city, Egypt. A model that is run and taught completely by Canadians flying all the way from their campuses in Canada to Egypt.
