COVID-19 information for face-to-face programs

We are intending to run our face-to-face Language and Culture programs this summer, in accordance with federal and provincial public health guidelines. Please see the travel and quarantine information below. 

Exemptions for fully vaccinated travellers authorized to enter Canada come into effect on July 5, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
Fully vaccinated travellers will be exempt from the federal requirement to complete a 14-day quarantine and take a COVID-19 test on day-8 following their arrival in Canada.

Fully vaccinated travellers authorized to enter Canada by air will no longer be required to book a mandatory 3-day stay at a government-approved hotel.

To be considered fully vaccinated, travellers must have received the full series of a vaccine or combination of vaccines approved by the Government of Canada at least 14 days prior to entering Canada. Travellers can receive their vaccine in any country. Please check the Government of Canada website for updated information on visa applications.

Please note the 14-day quarantine is not included in the price of your program and will be at your own expense. If you decide the face-to-face program won’t be an option, you may wish to consider one of our Language and Culture Online programs this summer. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns and email us at 

We are happy to be running both online and face-to-face programs this summer
