Keeping International Students in Hamilton

What can we do to keep international students in Hamilton post graduation?

Project Description: Global Hamilton is housed within Economic Development. We work with immigrants and newcomers to help them start businesses and invest in Hamilton. We know that International Students are an integral part of our community and contribute both in economic terms as well as cultural benefits. International Students come from all around the world to study at our institutions. Upon graduation they pursue other opportunities and leave Hamilton.
