The “Rencontres Internationales de Jeunes” program is offered each year by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It allows nearly 700 francophone youths from 60 countries to discover France through various cultural, touristic, scientific or sporting events.
The Embassy of France in Canada, as well as its three general Consulates (Moncton, Toronto and Vancouver), participate in this operation each year.
The trips to France usually take place in the spring or summer. Candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 25. All transportation, accommodation, food and insurance fees are paid by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Embassy of France in Canada.
