OSEF-ASBL is a not-for-profit organization that has been facilitating individual, reciprocal student exchanges between Canada and Europe since 1995.

Endorsed by the BC Ministry of Education, OSEF thrives on the true meaning of “Exchange”. We carefully match Canadian students ages 13-17 with a European partner from Belgium, France or Spain based on similar age and interests.

Students on both sides of the ocean take turns hosting each other for either one month during the summer, or, 9 or 11 weeks of the school year. This unique opportunity to attend school, and fully immerse in a new culture, has opened doors and broadened horizons for students, families and schools for over 20 years.

There is still time to apply for the 2017 /2018 exchange!
