Nova Scotia: Province, Businesses Create Jobs Here for Students

The province of Nova Scotia is teaming up with businesses to help recent graduates stay in Nova Scotia through student employment programs.

Like many universities and colleges in Nova Scotia, Acadia University offers various co-operative education programs to introduce work skills and provide work experience to students.

The Co-operative Graduate Placement Program provides a 50 per cent wage subsidy, to a maximum of $7,500, to private sector, government-funded and non-profit organizations for the first three months of permanent, full-time employment for a graduate of a co-operative education program at a Nova Scotia college or university.

All Nova Scotia companies are eligible to apply for the Co-operative Graduate Placement Program. The province also offers the Strategic Co-operative Education Incentive for students to connect and develop skills with Nova Scotia employers during their studies.
