EC Montreal is a member of Languages Canada.  This association has members in both the private and public sector from coast to coast.  Being a member is very important as it ensures that our school is offering quality in all of our service areas; academic, accommodation, activities and administration.

This year, Languages Canada initiated a national event called World Student Day!  This day will be celebrated annually by all Languages Canada members.  It is a day to say thank you to all our international students for choosing Canada for their language learning needs.

The event was held on August 8.  EC Montreal held a party at the Varcity 515 Residence.  We proudly displayed the World Student Day banner right beside our EC flag!  We had globe beach balls and Canadian and Quebec flags as decorations.  We had a map of the world on display and asked our students to place a sticker on the city where they are from.  It was so beautiful to see how many nationalities are present at EC Montreal.  We currently have 38!
