Atlantic Canada’s smartest import

Atlantic Canada’s smartest import

Atlantic Canada’s post-secondary institutions are realizing the real benefits of maintaining an international population, filling the gap caused by the many Atlantic Canadians who choose to leave their provinces. Could attracting and retaining more international students be the key to sustainable economic and cultural prosperity?
