In Ottawa OR online from anywhere in the world!

Students who join Discover Year come from far and wide. The Discover Year headquarters are in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada where the program was founded. Students have the option of joining the program in Ottawa or through our online, interactive platform from wherever they want to be.

In 2019, Discover Year was thrilled to welcome its first-ever international students to Ottawa to complete the program in-person. Together, these students brought new and unique voices, opinions and perspectives to the Discover Year community. If you are a student outside of Canada and interested in completing your Discover Year in Ottawa, please visit our International Students page.

Throughout the year, students come together for Discovery Days each week. Discovery Days offer an interactive and supportive setting where our students learn crucial skills through workshops, guest speakers and group coaching sessions. Whether you join our community in Ottawa or online, all of our programming is engaging and packed with real-time human-to-human communication and relationship building. The location for these inspiring and informative days are below.
