Retention of International Students and Foreign Workers

Notes & Ideas

  • “Study + Stay” program (3 year pilot) should it be made more aware of prior to students coming to Canada?
  • Affordable tuition
  • Job matching/shadowing
  • International students 10 times more likely to start a business/ take entrepreneurship
  • Highlight success stories
  • Mentorship for possible job opportunities
  • Need to know where the jobs are at
  • Little support for TFW


  • How do we market NL to students and foreign workers?
  • How do we make a plan for students to know what they need to know to stay in NL.


  • Showcase success stories
  • Dept for employers and TFW
  • Better forecasting welcoming programs
  • Social platforms
