This program welcomes participants in the low intermediate to advanced range of French proficiency.

Western University's French Immersion Week in Trois-Pistoles was all I had hoped it would be. In my work I need to be able to interact with French-speaking colleagues and I have a deep belief that it is my responsibility to support and advance the opportunities for Ontario's francophone community.  Trois-Pistoles has helped me fee more confident.  Every aspect - the hospitality of the hosts, the quality of the food, and the intelligence of the organization - has all been highly impressive. Thank you.   Kathleen Wynne
