The Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Program is a collaborative initiative of International Education Newfoundland and Labrador (IENL), Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) and College of the North Atlantic (CNA). It is a free program offered to motivated international students in or entering their final year of full-time study in Newfoundland and Labrador who are committed to living, working, and contributing to communities in the province following their graduation. The program is designed to provide participants with valuable essential skills, resources, and support to help with the transition from student to business professional and budding entrepreneur.
If you are interested in learning the fundamentals of professional skills, entrepreneurship and starting a business in Newfoundland and Labrador, the Atlantic Canada Study and StayTM NL Program is designed to help you through the process of identifying and discovering a business idea, building the foundational knowledge to pursue an opportunity as an entrepreneur, supporting the launch of a business opportunity, and becoming a successful professional.
This province-wide program connects international students directly to the entrepreneurial ecosystem and to the labour market, helping participants to build valuable professional and entrepreneurship skills, gain workplace knowledge, and build meaningful connections through workshops, networking, and mentorship. The goal of the program is to support international students to stay, live, and work in Newfoundland and Labrador post graduation.
The program is offered online and runs from October 2020 until the end of August 2021. Program applicants must be currently registered as international students at one of the Memorial University or College of the North Atlantic campuses and be in or entering their final year of full-time study. Applicants are not required to have a business idea as the goal of the program is to help develop one, however, having a prior business idea would be considered an asset. Applicants without a prior business idea are certainly encouraged to apply. Admission to the program is a competitive process with only 50 seats per offering.
