EduNova to launch Discover Nova Scotia – New Student Resource Hub

May 17, 2022


EduNova is pleased to announce Discover Nova Scotia – a digital student resource hub for new international students. The new online resource will offer information to prospective international students looking to study abroad, helping them identify academic, career and immigration opportunities and to help make Nova Scotia a destination of choice in a competitive global arena.

“Studying abroad is often the most consequential decision that international students and their families will make,” says Dr. Peter Ricketts, president & vice-chancellor of Acadia University and chair of EduNova’s board of directors. “This program provides prospective international students with information on post-secondary programs, labour market information, and immigration pathways so students can choose the path that best suits their future dreams and goals. This program also helps deepen Nova Scotia’s post-secondary sector commitment to transparency in supporting international students.”

The Discover Nova Scotia resource hub will be available through a new iCent app to all Nova Scotia prospective, admitted, and enrolled international students. The materials will cover Nova Scotia’s labour market, employment opportunities and immigration pathway options to help students and their families make informed decisions before leaving their home countries.

“Equipping prospective international students with key information on education, career, and immigration pathways before they arrive in Nova Scotia is vitally important. Not only will students feel more confident in choosing the province as their home away from home, but they will also be able to determine which post-secondary institutions and career paths are the best fit for their future,” says Shawna Garrett, president & CEO of EduNova.

EduNova, headquartered in Halifax, N.S., is a provincial co-operative association of education providers — the only one of its kind in Canada. EduNova’s mission is to champion Nova Scotia as a leader in the international student experience while advancing social and economic growth in the province. More information on the organization:
