YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada

Has your school group ever thought about exploring other regions of Canada, living in another community, meeting new people, learning Canada’s other official language, or exploring Canada’s cultural diversity? If so, YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada may be for you!

This group reciprocal home-stay exchange program is designed for groups of 10 to 30 participants between the ages of 12 and 17. Participants are twinned with same-age groups from another province or territory, and they take turns staying in each other’s homes for at least five days. Groups involved in outdoor activities can even arrange camp-stay exchanges.
