How to apply

Destination Clic is not a French immersion program and is not designed to teach French. It was created in 1977 as an opportunity for francophone students attending a French-first-language school outside of Quebec to take three weeks of classes, have fascinating experiences, make cultural discoveries, and form new friendships. Most importantly, students learn that there are other francophones just like them living all over Canada, and they develop a sense of cultural kinship and identity with their francophone roots.

Step 1: Read about the various institutions you can attend, and then choose which locations appeal to you the most.

Step 2: Create an on-line profile, or log in to your existing profile.

Step 3: Create an application. Make sure to save it by clicking on the “Finish” button before printing it. The print version of your application will be two pages long and will NOT contain your choices of institutions; it will contain a Declaration Form and an information page.

Step 4: You will need to take your Declaration Form to a registrar or designated official (teacher, principal, guidance counsellor) at your school and have him or her complete the section under the heading “Signature and Seal.” You will also need a school stamp or seal in the empty box below that section.

Step 5: You, as well as your parents or guardian, will need to sign and date the bottom of the Declaration Form.

Step 6: Attach a copy of your proof of citizenship to the Declaration Form. This could be any one of the following:

  • A copy of your Canadian birth certificate; or
  • A copy of your Canadian passport; or
  • A copy of your Canadian citizenship certificate (both sides); or
  • A copy of your permanent residence card or certificate (both sides).

Those studying in Canada on a student visa are not eligible.

Please note that we will not accept a driver’s licence, health or insurance card, student I.D. card, or Social Insurance (SIN) card as proof of citizenship or permanent residency.

Step 7: Send these documents to your provincial or territorial coordinator by the deadline. The application must be postmarked on or before the deadline, or else it may not be accepted.

Step 8: Your application may take a few weeks to process. You will hear from us by early April about whether you have received a place or not. (The draw date will be announced on our social media and Web site.) However, please be proactive. Check your on-line profile regularly to see if your status has changed, indicating that you have either been awarded a place or that you are on the waiting list.

Please note that all electronic communication will be sent to the e-mail address you have provided on your application form.
