Last Thursday, July 7, we had the honour of holding a virtual graduation ceremony to celebrate the sixth cohort of students to successfully complete our Study and Stay™ – Nova Scotia Program.
A total of 73 students from 32 countries walked the virtual stage, making this year’s graduating class our largest and most diverse to date. Guests joined in from across the province and beyond to offer their congratulations, with special remarks from the Honourable Brian Wong, Minister of Advanced Education; the Honourable Lena Metlege-Diab, Member of Parliament representing Halifax West; and Ava Czapalay, Deputy Minister of Labour, Skills and Immigration.
The ceremony was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our dedicated program participants and the hard work they have put into shaping their journeys in Nova Scotia over the past 10 months. It was also a moment to recognize the important impact supporters of our program have had over the past six years — especially our valued mentors, who volunteer their time to ensure international students are set up to succeed in the province.
We’d like to extend our warmest congratulations to our 2022 graduating class and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
We’ll be opening applications for our 2022-2023 Study and Stay™ – Nova Scotia Program cohort next month. Learn more.
