About the Study and StayTM – Nova Scotia Program

The Study and Stay™ – Nova Scotia Program is designed to support a select group of final-year international students completing their post-secondary studies in Nova Scotia. The 10-month program provides participants with career development opportunities while helping them build strong community connections.

The program includes a managed mentorship component, providing opportunities for students to apply their learnings, network, and gain a deeper understanding of Nova Scotia’s workplace culture and job market opportunities. As a mentor of the program, you’ll have a chance to expand your own network, gain leadership skills and support an international student as they work toward launching a successful career and fulfilling life in the province.

You must currently be employed or retired in Nova Scotia to qualify as a mentor for the Study and Stay™ – Nova Scotia Program. Ideally, as a mentor, you should have 2-3 years of experience working in your field. Those with less experience, however, may also be considered.
