Encounters with Canada

Spend a week at Encounters with Canada - our country's largest youth forum! Every week of the school year, 120-148 teens from across Canada, aged 14 to 17 years old, come to Ottawa, where they discover their country through each other, learn about important Canadian institutions, meet famous and accomplished Canadians, explore exciting career pathways, develop their civic leadership skills and live an extraordinary bilingual experience. Close to 100,000 youth have lived the EWC experience, to date!
