Where to Explore?

There are over 20 institutions across Canada that offer Explore! Discover their particular histories and communities. Each location has a different set of activities and workshops, as well as a unique community to welcome you to town.

Please note that each institution may have different start/end dates and age restrictions, and some offer credits and Languages at Work. Some locations even offer home-stays with local families as a way of immersing program participants even more deeply in the language. Canada has an amazing history and heritage to be explored — which adventure will you choose?

Please note that these are FSL (French-as-a-second-language) institutions only. Click here to see the ESL (English-as-a-second-language) institutions.

Programs

 

University of Victoria
Victoria (BC)

A French experience with a West Coast flavour. The program was created on beautiful Vancouver Island in 1965 (even before Explore existed!) under the name “La Maison Française.” We now have all the facilities and resources of a modern, vibrant university, but some things never change: sunshine, beaches, rainforests, and a lush, green campus in an incredibly charming city.

The activities preferred by participants:

  • Camping weekend
  • Butchart Gardens
  • African drumming

What makes this program special and unique:

  • Location on magnificent Vancouver Island, rich in beauty, history, and culture
  • Mild climate, beautiful beaches and forests, strong First Nation culture
