• Canadian History in France


      Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!

      “Venir avec nous à La Ville Des Lumières” and spend your summer in the enchanting country of France. Acclaimed as the romantic capital of the world, you will fall in love with the cobblestone streets, the macaroons and madeleine sweets, the art and the architecture that makes this city so alluring. Cruise on the River Seine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that divides the city of Paris and travels from Dijon in the Alps to meet the English Channel. Visit the Eiffel Tower, the most distinguishing feature of France, either by day or by the sparkling lights of night.

      The devastation of World War I marked the beginning of Canada’s journey from a colony of Great Britain to an autonomous nation. Feel the flames of national pride as you stand at the base of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial, a gift from France after WWI. Absorb the grandeur and elegance of the Palace of Versailles and enter the Hall of Mirrors to walk among the giants who negotiated and signed the 1919 Treaty of Versailles, sealing the end of the First World War, but simultaneously sowing the seeds of World War II. Walk the shores of Normandy Beach, where Canadian troops stormed the coastline ensuring success in the most critical hours of the D-Day battle at the end of the Second World War.
