Encounters with Canada

Encounters with Canada (EWC) is Canada’s largest youth forum, offering 27 bilingual programmed weeks. Each week brings 150 participants, aged 14-17, from across Canada to Ottawa to explore career opportunities and develop leadership skills with their peers.

EWC is currently offering a special rebate of $100 for new participants who register by March 13, 2020. The rebate is applicable to any theme week until May 2020. The rebate is limited and applies to remaining spots on a first come, first served basis.

Additionally, the provincial government can provide a subsidy of $114.64 per participant on a first-come, first-served basis.

A participant can claim both the rebate AND subsidy, which would make the program’s total cost $535.36!

For more information or to apply, visit the Encounters with Canada website.
