WHEEL International ENGThe New Brunswick French International Student Program has been welcoming young people between the ages of 12 to 18 since the fall of 2010. New Brunswick is Canada's only officially bilingual province, which gives students the opportunity not only to learn French, but to also improve their English.

The participants live with a francophone host family and attend a school, where all the courses are taught in French, except for a second language course in English and other optional language courses.
