EduNova’s Post-Graduation Immigration Support Program (PGIS) 

The Post-Graduation Immigration Support Program aims to support international graduates in Nova Scotia by providing instructional information on immigration programs and personalized immigration coaching.  

Eligible graduates will have access to a free session with a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) ffrom our program partner, Inspired Immigration. The consultants will assist participants in navigating the Canadian immigration system and identify their best option to stay in the province. During the advising session, consultants will answer questions, identify suitable pathways for permanent residency, and help build confidence in those filing independent applications.  

Eligible participants can register for the program through the iCent app. Once you have registered for the iCent app and selected “Post-Graduation Immigration Support Program” within the app, you have access to fill out a registration form and book a session with one of our Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants. You will be able to access information on Immigration Programs, collect personal documentation, and list questions prior to your RCIC session. After your free session, you will be able to confidently finalize your application and start the immigration process.

Testimonials

“With everybody sharing their experiences and thoughts regarding the immigration pathways and applications, many times it becomes overwhelming to find the right option for yourself. Connecting with an RCIC agent via the PGIS program helped me to funnel through the information and it’s authenticity along with finding the right pathway for myself.   All my doubts, confusions and queries were listened carefully and answered with patience. Caroline Lodge made me feel super comfortable and shared with me all the links to find the right resources to prepare my application. I would highly recommend connecting with an RCIC agent via the PGIS program to anybody who is looking to find someone to guide them through this journey and provide them with the right resources.” 

Mekah Kaushal, 2023 Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Business Management from Cape Breton University

"At times, seeking assistance and support for our immigration journey as international students can be challenging. This program proved to be a tremendous support for me. Paula was not only super friendly but also incredibly knowledgeable. She introduced several options for me to consider and guided me to find the right resources and information. This program has given me a sense of comfort and peace, making me realize there is a way to get the help I need."

Teo Kim, 2023 Graphic Design Graduate from Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC)

"I received my master's degree from SMU in December 2022. Upon receiving a job offer unrelated to my field of study, I became nervous about my prospects for obtaining permanent residency since I thought my job did not qualify for Express Entry. Teresa, however, was incredibly kind and supportive. She alleviated my stress by helping me identify my NOC code and assuring me that I would meet the PR qualifications. I believe that as international students and graduates, we feel lonely after immigration, especially during our PR journey. PR process is undeniably one of the most stressful aspects of immigration. I am grateful to have had the privilege of speaking with Teresa, who provided genuine assistance and support. and I wish there were more support such as this for us, as we are the future of Canada.
