Due to the current situation with coronavirus, we are not able to do many social events in person, but we are online! Keep watching this space because as restrictions ease we will be planning social activities that follow health unit recommendations.
'One on One' Friendship Partners
“One international student matched with one Canadian volunteer”.
A friendship partner is there to be your friend and to answer your questions about Canadian culture, English language and more; they help you navigate new foods, different weather, etc.
One on One Friendship Partners are available online or face to face when restrictions are lifted.
What students have said:
“My friendship partner gave me confidence to connect with Canadians”
“My friendship partner made me miss my family back home less.”

Friends for Dinner
Friends for Dinner is an initiative led by local churches to connect Canadians with international students in order to show them hospitality and build friendships during special holidays (Christmas, Easter, etc.)
Sports Nights, Outings and Social Activities
Will resume after Covid 19 restrictions have been lifted.
These are hosted by groups from the community, and typically involve a mixture of international students and local Canadians.
