About Doug Ronson

Doug has been a trailblazer in the international education sector for 30 years. He is the author of the book, The World’s Campus: Canada is a leader in attracting international students. That’s changing the country – for better and for worse.

In the book, he applauds Canadian international educators for developing an industry worth $22 billion. At the same time, he highlights the risks that organizations are taking by relying on students from just a few countries and counting on international tuition to balance the books.

Prior to joining the international education sector, Doug was a writer and news editor of the award-winning newspaper, The Kingston Whig-Standard.
