Toronto, Canada, Feb. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Visionary Education Technology Holdings Group Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VEDU), a private education provider located in Canada, with subsidiaries in Canada and market partners in China, today announced that on February 17, 2023, the Company has been selected by Camosun College, a public college located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, to help turn plans for an on-campus film studio with education components into a reality.
The decision to move to the next stage of discussions with the Camosun College to build a film studio is the result of a Request for Pre-Qualification released in September 2022. The Request for Pre-Qualification invited respondents to become pre-qualified to design, build and fund a film studio and digital media education centre in exchange for a 99-year lease with Camosun College.
It is anticipated that the discussions will result in a formal agreement with Camosun, which will finalize the scope, timeline and cost to build a film studio with education components.
In spring 2021, the B.C. Government provided $150,000 to aid Camosun in the exploration of educational opportunities for students in the B.C. film industry and the potential development of an on-campus film studio.
Ms. Fan Zhou, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “We are very pleased to be selected by Camosun College to move to the next stage of discussions around the development of a film studio on their campus. It reflects our effort to continue our growth plan to collaborate with colleges and create more academic opportunities for students. This will help fulfill our mission to broaden access to the multicultural education system of Canada and facilitate the achievement of students’ full potential.”
