We made it our mission to help Canadians land on their feet in new cities by helping them find accommodation and jobs, as well as host social events. We still proudly do that today, but over the years we’ve also expanded our horizons to include exciting programs in volunteering (in South Africa and India), teaching abroad (Thailand and Vietnam), and most recently into language and cultural programs (Japan and Costa Rica)!

As a not-for-profit program of the Canadian Federation of Students, it is our mission to offer you the best in international experiences at the lowest prices, whether you want to work in London, volunteer at an Indian orphanage, teach English overseas, or simply live by the beach in Australia.
