The MiniRez program is just like the MiniStay program, except instead of homestay accommodation, students and teachers enjoy evening and weekend activities together at a shared residence. Teachers and students integrate into authentic Canadian education and culture! Your school group can join a Canadian elementary or high school, taking part in classes, activities and local excursions.
Each group is matched with a host school and each student will shadow a Canadian student, their “buddy”, throughout the day. The students will experience Canadian academic life for a few weeks, attending school with Canadian students.
Evening/weekend activities include a variety of indoor and outdoor activities tailored to your group’s needs. Examples may include: ice skating, rock climbing, shopping, cinema, snow tubing, leadership-building activities, low ropes, street hockey, campfires, traditional indigenous craft making, and more!
