International Visitors Leadership Programs (IVLP) - Cultural Affairs coordinates the programs which enable Canadians who are emerging potential leaders in government, business, politics, the media, education, the arts, etc., to observe first-hand U.S. institutions and culture, and meet with professional counterparts to explore issues of common interest. Some twenty Canadians travel each year under this program on three-week study tours as guests of the U.S. government. Their visits better inform their views of the United States, link them with American colleagues, and influence public opinion or policy in Canada for mutual benefit.
Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program - Supported by both the U.S. and Canadian federal governments, the Fulbright Program is an educational exchange open to Canadian and American graduate students and scholars. Canadian Fulbright recipients travel to the U.S. to study, teach, or conduct research at a host university for a semester or a full school year. Americans come to Canada. Cultural Affairs serves as Fulbright’s U.S. government liaison.
