Nova Scotia has launched a program to recruit teachers graduating from the province’s universities before they’re lured to other parts of the country.

Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax is hosting a job fair designed to help the province’s school boards recruit new teachers before other provinces do

“We’ve taken a pro-active step to recruit these talented new teachers straight from university for Nova Scotia classrooms,” said Education Minister Angus MacIsaac. He also encouraged all qualified Nova Scotians who want to teach in the province to send resumes directly to school boards.
