We want to see you succeed! In addition to offering our international students free assignment support, our highly competent and informed International Student Success Advisor has put together a comprehensive set of academic resources that you can access at any time. These have been developed to assist international students with their transition to the Canadian classroom and in response to their vast array of writing needs.
