He submitted the first documents in May 2020 and received his Work Permit Support Letter early that winter. He was approved for a Work Permit in June 2021 and arrived on PEI in August 2021, starting his business just in time for school in September.
This client is passionate about facilitating opportunities for children and teenagers to engage in STEM learning so they can develop skills like computational thinking and real-world problem-solving.
