    Canadian Education Exchange Foundation

    Canadian Education Exchange Foundation

    CEEF organizes reciprocal educational exchange programs for elementary and secondary school students through partnerships with government and private agencies in many countries. There are two phases to every student exchange: a hosting period, and a visiting period. When you are successfully matched for a Two/Three-month Program, a visiting student lives with your family from the middle of August until early October/November and attends classes in your school once the fall term begins. To complete the exchange, you travel to the home country of your exchange partner, live with his/her family from early February until early/late April and attend school in that country.
