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
