International Student Pathways and Supports in Canada
Each year, Canadian post-secondary institutions welcome large cohorts of international students. Providing them with resources and information about jobs, settlement supports, and pathways to continuing residence in Canada is a key priority for government and service providers. This event brings together policy, practitioner and community perspectives on supporting international students’ resilience, employment, and transition to permanent residence.
Join us for an interactive exchange spotlighting different efforts and collaborative initiatives -including mentorship, professional development, and psychosocial supports – to enhance study and settlement experiences of international students and graduates.
