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?
Some institutions may require you to arrive a day earlier and/or leave a day later than the listed program dates. Please confirm your exact arrival and departure dates with your assigned institution before making any travel arrangements.
If you are not eligible for the funding provided by the Explore program (or if you miss the program deadline) and still wish to participate, most institutions accept participants who can cover their own expenses. Please contact the institution directly for more information.
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.
