The OCDSB / Aix-Marseille-Nice Reciprocal 5-Week Exchange

This exchange started in 2017 and has seen groups of between 15 and 40 OCDSB students host students from the Aix-Marseille-Nice region every fall and then travel to France every spring. Students attend school in French during that time.

The 2024-2025 Ottawa - Provence Exchange application is now closed. The 2025-2026 application will open in late January of 2025 and will be open to students in Core French or Immersion with preference given to students in the International Certificate Program.

Japan Yamate Gakuin Exchange

Since 2016, OCDSB students and students at Yamate Gakuin High School in Yokohama, Japan, have participated in bi-annual cultural exchanges.

Japanese students come to Ottawa in April of even-numbered years for two weeks to stay with host families, attend school a few times, and participate in various tours and activities in and around the Ottawa area.

The exchange resumed in 2023 with students from Cairine Wilson S.S. Colonel By S.S., Gloucester H.S. and Canterbury H.S. participating. We hope to be able to offer this exchange again in spring / summer 2025. Schools and school communities selected to participate will be informed in the Fall of 2024.

The slides shown at our June 14 Information Session are linked here and a video recording of that session is linked here.
