Youth Forums & Online Conversations

Experiences Canada Youth Leadership Forums and Online Conversations offer youth from across Canada the opportunity to lead and be part of an intensive ‘youth teaching youth’ experience. These in-person and online programs aim to empower youth to be more involved in current affairs as well as support secondary school educators who are looking for innovative ways to support their online learning plans.

In-Person & Virtual Exchanges

Experiences Canada offers youth in-person exchanges and virtual exchanges for participants between the ages of 12 and 17 years old and allow youth to increase their knowledge of a second language, learn about a new culture, remove social barriers and bias, form new friendships, and develop greater self-confidence .

In addition to our traditional virtual exchange program, youth can also participate in our Virtual Choir and Virtual Art Gallery.

Youth Development & Career Choices

Experiences Canada is committed to providing youth with opportunities that encourage a better understanding of themselves in the context of a broader world. To help youth navigate the choices for life beyond high school, we have created a series of programs, workshops, and resources that will guide decision-making about career options, employment opportunities, extracurricular activities, and other steps youth can take to realise their goals.

This! Is Canada: Interactive map

Through our programs, youth across the country have created videos, websites, and other multi-media features that display their communities. These projects were shared with each other throughout their time as a participant in our virtual exchange program. Take a virtual tour across Canada as seen through the eyes of our youth!

About Experiences Canada

Experiences Canada is a national registered charity that helps young Canadians to explore their country in ways they never may have imagined through reciprocal exchanges, forums, conferences and other opportunities to travel and connect with one another.

Every year, participating schools and youth organizations send 10-30 youth (ages 12- 17) on exchange somewhere in Canada. On average, 4,500 youth and their chaperones per year are chosen, representing just under 200 groups. That’s hundreds of thousands of young Canadians who have benefited from a student exchange experience since we began over 80 years ago.
