Looking for a challenge or adventure that will change your life?

Trois-Pistoles is the perfect setting in which to hone your French language skills while broadening your perspective on the Canadian experience.

Thanks to Western’s partnership with an amazing group of host families, Trois-Pistoles has been home to Canada’s longest running French immersion school since 1932.

Our unique range of degree-credit and non-credit programs offers something for everyone. And after class, you’ll delight in soaking up the rich history and culture of this charming Quebec town along with the warm hospitality of its people.

À bientôt!
