Guides for employers and international students 

The International Education Centre at MSVU was proud to partner with Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) to develop two guides to support employment and retention of international students and graduates to the Atlantic region.

Available in both official languages, both International students and Employers will find these guides are a helpful resource in this area.

These guides can be downloaded and added to organizational websites, and distributed in soft or hard copies as desired.

About these publications:

This publication originated at Mount Saint Vincent University (MSVU) as a project undertaken by Career Services and Co-operative Education. The expansion of the guides to include information and resources for all of Atlantic Canada was made possible with the support of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA).

We are grateful to the advisory committee, which was made up of representatives from across the university and college sector in the Atlantic provinces, as well as representatives from the provincial immigration offices, and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Their time spent reviewing and making suggestions was valuable in ensuring that the content is as complete as possible and is an accurate reflection of our individual areas.

MSVU will maintain these guides on an ongoing basis. Any feedback can be sent to
