August 14, 2018

Prince Edward Island has surpassed its employment target for international students, reports CBC. Corey Frizell, International Student Employer Liaison Officer for the PEI and Canadian governments, stated that the province set a 10% target for finding full-time work for international graduates in 2018, and that 15% have found positions. CBC states that PEI graduates work in a range of sectors, including environmental technology, fish plants, call centres, civil service, banking, retail, and childcare. Frizell added that although not all of the students have immediately found work in their field of choice, their present jobs afford them the opportunity to keep looking as they stay in Canada.
