January 11, 2019

The municipality of Chatham-Kent, Ontario has launched a program to attract post-secondary graduates who left the area to pursue their studies, reports Chatham this Week. The baCK Student Connection Tool invites grads to complete a survey that asks participants to list their post-secondary school and program, the types of jobs they are interested in, and their expected graduation date. Chatham-Kent’s resident Attraction and Retention Coordinator Victoria Bodnar said that the initiative grew out of a 2016 survey that found people between ages 15 and 39 list employment as the biggest factor when they consider where to live. Chatham this Week (ON)
