Language assistants, we have good news for you!

1.    You may have heard the exciting news already, but if not, it’s worth repeating – you got a raise! The Council of Ministers of Education, Canada is pleased to announce a salary increase to $25,000 from $18,500 for all Odyssey language assistants and promotion agents, for the nine-month mandate! This translates to approximately $25 per hour, which is very competitive compared to similar language assistant programs across Canada. We hope this increase will help you get more out of your Odyssey experience!

2.    If you are a 2018–19 or 2019–20 Odyssey language assistant, you are eligible to participate in the 2020 Explore program! Your tuition fees, instructional materials, meals, and accommodations for the program are covered (a value of $2,800) when you register. For more information about the Explore program and eligibility criteria, click here.

Applying is easy!  Simply fill out and submit an online Explore application, using your existing Odyssey username and password, on the website. No need to include supporting documents or your signed declaration form.
The early-bird deadline to apply is February 15, 2020. More information on the deadline and the application process can be found here.

Apply NOW! We look forward to offering you another official language experience!

Please note: You are expected to complete your Odyssey mandate before participating in Explore (many spring sessions start before the end of your mandate).
