Welcome from the President

Amit Chakma President and Vice-Chancellor of Western

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to a truly unique and exciting program. For over eighty-five years, Western and the people of Trois-Pistoles have been engaged in a partnership in language education that embodies the best of the Canadian spirit. The Trois-Pistoles French Immersion School brings a range of degree-credit language courses from elementary to advanced, challenging workshops, and a wide range of social and cultural events to its participants. Most importantly, the program involves “living the culture” in the homes of local hosts.

As a resource and a bridge to facilitate your learning experience, the program provides the highest quality of instructors, a Director and supportive staff, and welcoming homestay families. The immersion program fosters the rapid integration of students into the life of the Trois-Pistoles community and features innovative academic activities and facilities, such as the new multimedia laboratory. Generations of former students cherish their time at Trois-Pistoles as a highlight of their educational experience and of their cultural development as Canadians. Whether you are a graduating secondary school student, a college or university student, or already launched in your career, we look forward to helping you broaden your frontiers and capacities through the Trois-Pistoles experience.
