Career Tours Program

Program Description

Career Tours:  is a unique add-on to your studies, in which you have the opportunity to tour a Canadian company, ask questions, and learn more about a certain career. Whether you’re interested in aerospace, film, chocolate making, or finance – you can take a tour that will help increase your understanding of the field – while also practicing your English or French-language skills.

Tours can be done individually, or as part of a group. When you book a Career Tour, we will talk to you to find out your career interests, and then they will build a tour to match that. Each tour takes about 2 hours, and includes a guided visit of a workplace, a talk by a professional in your chosen field, and a questions and answers session.
