International Orientation

Each term, we host International Orientation (IO) events and programming to help you get the best possible start to your time in Canada and at Laurier. 

Laurier International has cancelled all in-person orientation activities for January 3, 2022, but we have lots of online activities for students to participate in! 

Winter 2022 International Orientation

The programming we have planned is designed to provide you with the information you need to feel prepared to start your term at Laurier as well as to connect with other students and get to know our campuses and communities. We encourage you to attend as many events as possible.

Virtual Events for Degree-Seeking Students

Virtual Events for Exchange Students

For all exchange students coming to Laurier for the winter term from one of our partner institutions, we have orientation and pre-arrival content just for you. We're also sending you pre-arrival emails every Thursday. If you're not receiving these emails, please contact us and let us know.

We encourage you to join our Facebook group just for incoming exchange students. This group is a great place to connect with other exchange students, meet current Laurier students, ask questions and start connecting with the Laurier community. 

What to Expect During IO

  • Participate in workshops about academic success in Canada.
  • Learn about study permits and working in Canada.
  • Virtually meet advisors, student mentors, new friends and faculty.
  • Hear from professors and university leaders.
  • Get the best possible start to your studies at Laurier.
