Offered by British Columbia’s Ministry of Education, the BC – Quebec Exchange Program enables BC students in grade 10 and 11 to spend 3 months living in Quebec. Students must apply in grade 9 or 10 to go on exchange the following year.
In the fall of the exchange year, B.C. students and their families welcome the Quebec students who they were matched with into their homes. For three months, the B.C. and Quebec students attend school and participate in local activities together
In late January, the B.C. students travel to Quebec, and spend three months there living with the Quebec students and their families, attending school, and experiencing Quebecois culture.
There is no application fee for the program, and all travel costs are covered by the Ministry of Education.
