A variety of evening events and weekend trips are organized for students by International English Programs’ staff. From Toronto’s many distinguished art galleries and museums, to its fashionable shopping districts and eclectic nightlife, the city’s diversity makes Toronto an ideal destination for international visitors.

Evening Events offer opportunities to attend world-class theatrical and musical performances, explore Toronto’s vibrant ethnic neighborhoods, shop in the city’s trendiest areas, and experience some of Toronto’s most popular events including an outdoor cultural festival at Toronto Harbourfront, a professional baseball game at the Rogers Centre, and a trip to the top of the world’s tallest building – the CN Tower.

Weekend Trips allow students to relax and enjoy Canada’s culture and geography with trips to Toronto’s Centre Island; a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake – a beautiful historic town in Canada’s premier wine producing region; and an unforgettable boat ride to the base of Niagara Falls.

Students are also encouraged to join a guided tour of French Canada. The tour visits Ottawa (Canada’s capital city), Montreal and Quebec City where students explore the cradle of French civilization in North America. During the trip, students experience the Canadian Parliament Buildings, Byward Market, Mont Royal, St. Joseph’s Oratory, Montreal’s Old Port, Notre Dame Basilica, Olympic Park, Chateau Frontenac, and Old Quebec City.
