About the Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ – Newfoundland and Labrador Program

The goal of Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ – Newfoundland and Labrador is to support international students to live, work, and stay in Newfoundland and Labrador post-graduation. The program provides participants with the essential skills, resources, and support needed as they transition from ‘student’ to ‘professional’ in their final year of study.

Mentorship: Making Connections that Make a Difference - Become a mentor today!

A managed mentorship component is an integral part of the program, providing opportunities for students to apply their learning, build connections, and gain a deeper understanding of Atlantic Canada’s workplace culture and labour market opportunities.

What mentors do:

  • Meet with your assigned student a minimum of 4-6 times between January 2021-July/August 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings will be on-line.
  • Share your knowledge, skills, advice, and connections.
  • Work one-on-one with an international student to support their professional learning goals.
  • Provide feedback to your mentee on their areas of strength and improvement.
  • Respond to students and be open to answering questions about working in the province.
  • Be available to support your student as she or he transitions from ‘student’ to ‘professional’
  • Mentors will receive a mentorship manual to support their mentoring process, as well as support as needed from the program coordinator.

Mentors: be prepared to give yourself time of approximately 5-10 minutes to complete your application.

In Newfoundland and Labrador, the program is administered by International Education Newfoundland and Labrador (IENL). For more information about IENL click here:
