Bilingual and multicultural, Canada

embraces a wide variety of peoples,

landscapes and lifestyles.

From the rural

villages of the North to the dynamic modern

cities found throughout its ten provinces and

three territories, Canada has come to be

known as home for many. You will live with a

host family and experience life as the Ca-

nadians do—always with a flair of the Euro-

pean. Get involved in all types of activities,

from clubs and sports, to music and drama

groups at the local high school or within the

community. Community life plays an impor-

tant part in the everyday life of the Canadian.

As do sports and recreation. From ice hockey

to downhill skiing to windsurfing, there is

something to satisfy every interest. Spend

time with your new friends while exploring

the many wonders Canada has to offer.

English

Speaking Canada

A fascinating mosaic of different cultures and

natural diversity of landscapes. You can enjoy

the cosmopolitan atmosphere of cities like

Toronto, Calgary or Vancouver, or explore the

wild, untamed nature of the wilderness areas.

Imagine the breathtaking Canadian Rocky

Mountains with world-class ski resorts, crystal

clear lakes and rivers, or Toronto’s CN Tow-

er—one of the world’s tallest

free-standing structures.

Here you may experience the adventure of

being a part of a new culture while still feeling

secure within the bond of a common lan-

guage. School and family life will be comfort­

able and more familiar in your new Canadian

community.

French

Speaking Canada

Savour the rich distinctive French Canadian

culture, a blend of French and North Ameri-

can. You will come to love the warmth and

sophistication of the “Québécois” while

perfecting your French. Considered the

birth-place of North American history, Quebec

City is the only walled city on the continent

and preserves a distinct European feel. Live

outside of the lively city of Montreal, the

second-largest French speaking city in the

world, after Paris, or in a cottage in a quaint

country village. Here, English is the sec-

ond language, and the culture isundeniably

French. Return home bilingual, speaking

French like native “francophone” Canadians.
