CCNB receives $2M to support international Francophone students


Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick has received over $2M from the Government of Canada and Government of New Brunswick to support international Francophone students. CCNB will use the funds to adapt its service model to better meet the needs of its international student population and support them as they prepare to transition into NB’s job market. “Attracting and retaining French-speaking students from other parts of the world is critical to maintaining New Brunswick’s bilingualism and to meeting the province’s labour market demands,” said NB Minister of Postsecondary Education, Training, and Labour Greg Turner. “This initiative will help international students better adapt to their new surroundings and better prepare them to stay and work in New Brunswick upon graduation.”
