Application process and requirements
Teachers must be resident in Ontario, British Columbia or New Brunswick. Other provinces also offer teacher exchange programmes, but through different organizations. Applicants may request an exchange with one or more CEEF partner countries. However, some countries, subject areas, and grade levels are harder to match than others. The more exchange destinations an applicant is willing to accept, and the more flexible a school can be in the teaching assignment for the incoming teacher, the easier it is to find a suitable match. Both participants must be capable of handling the teaching task and other professional responsibilities in their host school. Normally, exchanges for the Northern Hemisphere start in September and coincide with the Canadian school year. For the Southern Hemisphere, exchanges begin in January or February and continue for a full year.
