International Students Trip to Montreal

International Students Trip to Montreal

Over 70 international and International Certificate Program students took part in the Montreal day trip on Saturday, October 30th.

It was the first student trip since 2019. All the students, OCENET staff, and ISX tour guides had to be fully vaccinated to participate.

One of the highlights was walking around downtown on Sainte-Catherine Street and doing some shopping at the Eaton Centre. The students enjoyed the view of Montreal from the Mount Royal lookout and La Grande Roue de Montreal at the Old Port, which is the tallest Ferris wheel in Canada at a height of 60 metres or the equivalent of a 20-story building. They also followed their tour guides for a walk to see the beautiful Notre-Dame Basilica in Old Montreal before venturing off in pursuit of souvenirs.

And what trip to Montreal could be complete without tasting one of the foods that the city is best known for? The students had smoked meat sandwiches at Dunn’s Restaurant. Chelsea Chapman, one of the chaperones, said, "The students ... seemed to have enjoyed themselves a lot …and to make friends.”
