Saskatchewan-Québec Student Exchange Program

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022-23 Saskatchewan-Québec Student Exchange Program will be made available in a modified virtual exchange format.

Saskatchewan students in Grade 10 and 11 can take part in an exchange with students from Québec through a virtual exchange program.

The program will span a period of six weeks, commencing in October 2022. This is a virtual exchange program and each student will be using a social media platform of their choice to communicate with their twin. All communication/activities are to take place after school hours. Students will be in contact with their twin at least twice during the week.

As the Saskatchewan-Québec Student Exchange Program will be held virtually in the 2022-23 school year, the liaison teacher is not required to conduct an interview with the student and their family.
