Language-Assistant Program

Travel • Work • Learn

Are you looking for a paid work experience in a school environment? Does the opportunity to travel throughout Canada, and share your culture appeal to you? Take part in Odyssey!

Odyssey is a language-assistant program. Under the supervision of a teacher, your role will be to encourage students to improve their knowledge of the English language and its associated cultures and to use the language on a daily basis. You will leave your home province or territory to work in a rural or suburban area in another province.

The application period for 2014-15 is now closed. We are, however, still looking for French-speaking language assistants. Please contact your provincial or territorial coordinator for more information. Their contact information is available here.
