The International Student Program of the Upper Grand District School Board (UGDSB) welcomes and provides our international students with the opportunity to study alongside Canadian students under the Ontario public education system.  Our 60+ elementary schools and 10 secondary schools offer exceptional academic programs for students at all grade levels. UGDSB schools are in traditional Canadian communities, where over 95% of residents speak English as their first language.

Our region is rich in culture, architecture, parks, riverside and green spaces. Our Southwestern Ontario climate boasts four greatly varied and visually striking seasons: autumn, winter, spring and summer. Many outdoor and indoor recreational and leisure activities are available throughout the year.

Our highly regarded academic institutions with state-of-the art equipment and facilities, our culturally-rich region, as well as our areas of high tech industry make the Upper Grand District School Board an amazing location for students to experience Ontario and Canada.
