This is a unique opportunity for Canadian teens to meet other young people from across the country. Every week of the school year, 120 to 150 teens from across Canada, aged 14 to 17 years, come to Ottawa. Here they discover their country through each other, learn about Canadian institutions, meet famous and accomplished Canadians, explore exciting career options, develop their civic leadership skills and live an extraordinary bilingual experience. Within a 27-week framework, EWC offers 14 exciting, career-oriented  themes which determine program dates.
Round-trip travel to The Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre is provided free of charge by Canadian Heritage!

​What Can I Do With My Degree?

The discipline you study doesn't determine what you will do after graduation. Your degree is just one of the many important assets you bring to your future career. However, taking a look at some potential career paths for your program of study can be helpful for giving you ideas that you may not have considered otherwise.

https://careers.yorku.ca/students-and-new-grads/what-can-i-do-with-my-degree/

The experiences you have, the people you meet, and what you learn about yourself along the way all contribute to building your career. Choosing a major or preparing to graduate are exciting and overwhelming times. The best strategy is to actively explore what interests you, and reflect on the skills you're building. Explore first. Learn along the way. Make informed decisions about professional opportunities.
