The BC – Quebec Exchange Program is open to grade 10 and 11 French Immersion and Francophone program students. Students must apply in grade 9 or 10 to go on exchange in grade 10 or 11, the following year.
- Each participant is matched with a student from Quebec in the
spring of the application 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.
