• Civics and Careers – July – Canadian Itinerary

      Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!

      Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City

      Walk in the footsteps of great Canadians as you learn about our rich heritage and the true Canadian experience. Discover first-hand what it means to be a responsible citizen – locally and nationally. Understand what role Canada plays within an increasingly interconnected global community.

      Through interactive and engaging activities, discover your true strengths as a learner and begin to envision your academic and professional career. Develop into a model student as you create an impactful resume and cover letter to put yourself in position for great future education and professional opportunities.

      Experience Canadian government as students walk the halls of Parliament and learn about civic importance and sacrifices made by Canadians at the War Museum in Ottawa. Take in the treasures of Old Quebec as you walk down the cobbled streets to see the Chateau Frontenac, listen to live musicians and explore its nearby natural treasures.  Students will learn and apply the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO)  values about the protection of human innovation and heritage. Discover all that Quebec has to offer and understand why this city is one of Canada’s most important UNESCO sites. Students will live and learn on University campuses and begin to envision the reality of post-secondary life and work with Ontario’s premier Careers/Guidance based websites and resources.
