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 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. The Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ NL Program is designed to help students 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.
