Program Update 2021

At Western’s French Immersion School, we are committed to maximizing opportunities to learn French. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our learning format has been adjusted in order to deliver our courses to you in the safest way possible. This summer, our credit programming will be offered online and, in the fall, we will continue to offer our non-credit French Essentials courses in the usual online format.

Due to increased travel restrictions and the arrival of new COVID-19 variants, we have decided to cancel all in-person programs for the remainder of 2021. The health and safety of our students and community is our top priority.  We look forward to welcoming you to Trois-Pistoles in 2022.
