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. Events take place in Waterloo and Brantford.

IO is a great way to explore the campus and local community, and meet new people, before your studies begin. IO is mandatory for all first-year international students.

We have started planning our international orientation programming for fall 2020 and we'll provide more information soon.

What to Expect During IO

  • Participate in workshops about academic success in Canada.
  • Learn about study permits and working in Canada.
  • Meet advisors, student mentors, new friends and faculty.
  • Socialize at events with free food and great company!
  • Get the best possible start to your studies at Laurier.
