Canada is a land of vast distances and rich natural resources. It is an affluent, high-tech industrial society mirroring the US, its neighbor to the south. The NAFTA treaty, signed in 2004, has further integrated Canadian and American economies: 80% of Canadian exports are traded to the US. Canada, however, differs from the US in many ways. Notably, it has a nationalized health care system and has battled separatist movements in predominantly francophone Quebec. The Global Learning Company develops seminars to world-class cities such as Montreal, Toronto, British Columbia, where students are introduced to the Canadian health care system, learn how Canada balances natural resource development with environmental concerns, or follow other customized business itineraries.

Montreal, Canada

"I found it amazing how Montreal is the second largest French speaking city in the world after Paris! Considering the short distance from the U.S., it really is a completely different and unique experience."
