Pathway to Stay in Nova Scotia

Preparing international students for Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and employment

In partnership with Business + Higher Education Roundtable, and with the support from the Government of Canada, Nova Scotia Community College and Dalhousie University will be delivering a program focused on Work Integrated Learning (WIL). 

Pathway to Stay Program for NSCC and Dalhousie Students is a free, non-credit program open to all NSCC and Dalhousie (undergraduate) international students that runs from January to July 2024. We still have spots available!!! Students are welcome to register by using this link.

The project will involve 3 interconnected work-integrated learning (WIL) components whose content is developed by En Point

  • Workshops: will provide students with the opportunity to focus on their career development goals and sharpen their skills and build their toolkit. These workshops will prepare students for the bootcamps and showcases. 
  • Bootcamps: events to practice and improve students' job-seeking skills and become more confident with networking and personal interactions. Students will also work on presentation skills, branding, networking, and employer research. 
  • International Students Showcases: will include a case competition, student pitch competition, networking with employers and employer information sessions.
