Students Nova Scotia defends housing needs for International Students

March 18, 2016

Students who spoke to CBC News about the house on Payzant Street never made a formal complaint about their concerns.¬†Research by Students Nova Scotia¬†found that’s not unusual among international students.

“We looked specifically at international students as a population that may not have the local social support network in place to search for appropriate housing, or even know the city well enough to know what a good place to live in the city would be,” said Nick Head-Petersen, the executive director of Students Nova Scotia.
