Transition Talks on Zoom

Transition Talks are discussions that offer content related to living and studying in Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are delivered in a smaller group format and will last about 30 minutes.

Join us for informal discussions to help you through COVID-19 as an international student. Transition Talks will give you the opportunity to talk to other international students, ask questions, and talk about topics important to you and your success as a student here.

Students will receive an email invitation from internationaltransition@conestogac.on.ca with a link to sign up through the Co-Curricular Portal (CCP).
