Atlantic Business College student left frustrated after college dropped from work permit pilot program


An international student who chose to study at the Atlantic Business College because of its involvement in a government pilot program is expressing frustration after learning that his college no longer qualifies for the program, reports CBC. The New Brunswick Private Career College Graduate Pilot program was expected to lead to a work permit, and the college’s website still points to the work permit as a benefit of the program. Government of New Brunswick officials have reportedly not provided an explanation for why the college was dropped and student Omar Burqan says that the college has not responded to his messages. Burqan and four other international students are reportedly talking to a lawyer about suing the college for tuition paid.
