Where learning is a true adventure!

Please note that the Exchanges Canada Program website is currently transitioning to a new website for Fall 2013.

The Exchanges Canada Program and its Youth Exchanges and Youth Forums components remain operational.

Exchanges Canada is a Government of Canada initiative that helps Canadian youth connect with one another, experience the diversity of Canada’s communities, languages and cultures, and get involved in the future of the country.

The program also gives youth, parents/guardians and teachers/organizers access to information on many exchanges and forums. A list of other opportunities open to young Canadians, but not funded by Exchanges Canada, is also available.

Working with our delivery organizations, Exchanges Canada aims to involve exchange and forum participants from all walks of life, and we encourage young adults from underrepresented groups of youth such as Aboriginals, visible minorities and those with disabilities to apply.
