Canada Select Exchange Program

Choose the Canadian Exchange that's right for you

Our Canada Select Exchange Program provides students with additional choice and selection for their exchange experience.

Select Programs to Canada allow students to choose a preferred region they would like to call ‘home’, and then a choice of school districts within that area. Students may choose a particular region based on it’s geographic location, the particular school they wish to attend or the available extra curricular activities.

A member of our team will discuss your needs and interests, and help you choose the one that’s right for you. Simply contact us on 1800 500 501 or email scceaust@scce.com.au

Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia Canada Exchange Program

Nova Scotia is a historic and scenic province located on the southeastern coast of Canada with only 20 km of land joining it to the rest of Canada. Nova Scotia is almost entirely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Its population of nearly 1 million people makes it the most populous province in the Atlantic region, and its capital city, Halifax, is the largest urban area east of Montreal. Nova Scotia is Canada’s warmest province, with four distinct seasons of spring, summer, fall, and winter. Nova Scotia is a relatively compact and densely populated province (by Canadian standards), so unless you are traveling along the length of the province from the southwest tip (Yarmouth) to the northeast (Cape Breton Highlands National Park),  distances are not excessive.
