New places, new people, new experiences!

The Summer Work Student Exchange program offers youth aged 16-17 the opportunity to gain paid work experience, practice their second official language skills, and discover another community within Canada. For more information about the SWSE program, click here.

The Government of Canada, through Exchanges Canada, a part of the Department of Canadian Heritage, provides financial assistance for this program. Exchanges Canada also offers information on exchange activities available to young Canadians through the 1 800 O-CANADA information line (1 800 935-5555, TDD/TTY 1 800 926-9105) or their website.
