Attention High School Students - Encounters With Canada Limited Special Rebate!

Montreal - Wednesday, December 11, 2019

Encounters With Canada is a unique opportunity for Canadian teens to meet other young people from across the country, spend an adventure-filled week in the nation’s capital, check out future career options  and discover more about Canada. 

For 37 years, EWC has delivered a rich and varied bilingual program. To date, more than 115,000 youth have participated in EWC… now it’s your turn! The program costs $750 for the full week, covering travel, accommodation, meals and all programming - activities, visits and tours. Additionally, there are needs-based bursaries available.

EWC is one of the many acclaimed programs of Historica Canada, and is recognized and endorsed by the Ministry of Education in every province and territory. The program also receives generous funding from Canadian HeritageVeterans Affairs, and others. Participation in the EWC program is officially recognized by the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program. EWC offers 15 exciting, career-oriented themes, including science and technology, law and justice, medicine and health,  democracy and youth, and sports and fitness. There’s something for everyone, no matter your interests! Find out more here: http://www.encounters-rencontres.ca.

EWC is offering a special rebate of $100 off three theme weeks for new participants who register before January 17, on a first-come basis. They are the following:

Tech & Agri-Food: February 9 to 15, 2020

  • Global Affairs: February 16 to 22, 2020
  • Business & Entrepreneurship: March 1 to 7, 2020

Here is what some participants had to say

"After a week of laughter, meeting new friends, learning about our Canadian history and forming ties across the country, I’ve realized that this experience is one of the most valuable we young Canadians should encounter,” - Autumn Juanicotena-Heal, Richmond, BC, Journalism & Communications 2015 

"EWC is a remarkable program that gives Canada’s youth an open environment of learning and growing as individuals as well as a country. It is such a beneficial program to today’s youth that will impact them (myself included) for the rest of our lives." - Grace Turner, Calgary, Alberta, Arts & Culture 2014
