Integration week

Welcome new students! Integration Week is designed to help new students make a smooth transition to living and studying in Ottawa. It is an important first step you are taking towards achieving your goals. 

The informative sessions and the fun activities planned during this week will help you become familiar with your new environment while meeting staff members and other students.

The goals of Integration Week are as follows:

  • Introduce you to the university campus and the city of Ottawa.
  • Give you some insights into Canadian culture and the cultural adjustment process.
  • Provide you with tools and strategies that promote academic success.

Please note that participation is mandatory and attendance is taken during Integration Week.
