Explore: French immersion program now welcoming applicants

The Department of Education is seeking youth between the ages of 13 and 18 and post-secondary students to apply for the Explore program. Explore is a three- to five-week spring or summer French immersion experience, taking place in various locations across Canada.

Nunavummiut will have the opportunity to learn a new language both inside and outside of the classroom, while exploring a new region in Canada and making new friends. Participants are divided into classes based on existing language skills and will practice their French language skills in guided workshops and group outings. No previous French language experience is required.

Meals, accommodation, course fees, instruction materials, workshops and some group activities are covered for accepted participants by Explore. Travel fees will need to be paid upfront for participants but can be reimbursed by the Department of Education upon completion of program.

The early-bird application deadline is February 15, 2020. For more information, contact Nunavut’s territorial coordinator, Pascale Baillargeon, at 867-975-5677 or, or visit
