Interested in moving to Ottawa for your Discover Year?

Whether you're coming from Halifax, Vancouver or anywhere in between, we would love to have you join us in Ottawa for your Discover Year!

If you're interested in pushing yourself outside your comfort zone and moving to Ottawa for your Discover Year, our staff will be happy to support you through this process.

As a vibrant and dynamic city with several post-secondary schools, Ottawa offers plenty of affordable accommodation options for students. While Discover Year does not have official residences for out-of-town students, we offer guidance and support to students to help them find accommodations that suit their budget and needs, whether that means finding an apartment with other students, booking a long-term Airbnb, or arranging a homestay with other local Discover Year students and their families.

Students are welcome to move to Ottawa for the entire duration of their Discover Year or just for a portion of it, depending on their unique situation and goals for the year.
