What is Explore?

Bilingualism in Action

Explore is an intensive French or English-immersion program that is offered by the Official Languages Programs (OLP) during the spring and summer. If you are interested in learning or improving French or English and travelling to a new part of Canada, then Explore might be the perfect program for you!
