Canada is a cultural mosaic, rich in regional diversity. By exploring another community, youth strengthen their second language, develop cultural awareness, break down social barriers and improve self-confidence. For over 79 years, Experiences Canada has worked with schools and community groups to provide educational exchanges, trips and forums for Canadian youth between the ages of 12 and 17, over 360,000 youth have benefitted from our programming.
