We want to emphasize that Canada is a safe and welcoming place. Here at Wilfrid Laurier University, we take immense pride in fostering a vibrant and inclusive community for all of our students. We are here to support you and please know that your success is our utmost priority.

Canada's climate allows you to experience all four seasons. Our cities will be blanketed in snow through the winter months, and warm and sunny through the summer months.
In the winter you will find fellow golden hawks skating on local ice rinks, snowshoeing through city parks, or tobogganing after a fresh snow fall. In the summer, take in the fresh air by hiking along local trails, going to the beach for a swim, or canoeing down the Grand River.
No matter what season we are in, whether you’re playing in the snow or in the sun, there are lots of activities to indulge in.
