Canadian Studies

Canadian Studies 15 is a bridging course designed to help our English Language Learners gain important foundational language and knowledge before enrolling in future humanities courses. The course provides students with a rich language-learning atmosphere where they explore essential concepts related to Canadian society. Students use their own growing competencies in English to examine and engage with a range of academic and content-specific materials connected to the Social Studies curriculum.
