CPF BC & Yukon is delighted to participate in a partnership between our branch and Encounters with Canada, a dynamic cultural organization aimed at building cultural awareness in Canada.
Encounters With Canada runs a one-week, bilingual, Canadian studies program at The Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre, in Ottawa. From September through May, more than 130, 14 – 17 year olds attend the youth forum each week. 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 your nation’s capital! Check out future career options, discover your country, share your hopes and dreams. For 34 years, EWC has delivered a rich and varied, bilingual program. To date, more than 105,000 youth have lived the EWC experience… now it’s your turn!
Encounters with Canada covers the travel and accommodation costs, students are required to raise the $625 registration fee.
Since September 20011, CPF has awarded over 30 $100 bursaries to youth delegates from BC and Yukon to help subsidize the registration fee.
Only children of CPF members are eligible for the bursary. Bursaries will be allocated to members on a first come, first served basis.
To apply for the bursary, please download the form below and provide proof of acceptance to the program and proof of payment to Encounters.
