Are you an international graduate with plans to stay in Nova Scotia? If your answer is yes, this program may be for you! The Post-Graduation Immigration Support Program aims to support international graduates by providing instructional information on immigration programs and personalized immigration coaching.
Eligible graduates will have access to a session with a regulated Canadian immigration consultant from the program’s 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.
To be eligible for an immigration advising session, international graduates must:
– Have finished their studies at a post-secondary institution in Nova Scotia in the past year (between April 2020 to date)*;
– Possess a Post-Graduation Work Permit, or proof of application for one; and
– Have a job or job offer from a Nova Scotian employer for a position based and taxed in the province.
* Graduation date requirement extended temporarily – the date is to be reviewed again in 2023.
