Enrichment Mini-Courses Program

The Enrichment Mini-Courses Program is a unique annual event in the world of Canadian education.

Since its creation in 1981, over 50,000 talented students – from grades 8 to 11 in Eastern Ontario, and Secondary II to V in Western Quebec – have been given the opportunity of exploring a field of study or area of interest in a university or college setting. These students have acquired knowledge and skills that will help them achieve academic success and stimulate their interest in pursuing post-secondary studies.

Program Description

The Enrichment Mini-Courses Program is offered every year during the first week of May. During that time, participating post-secondary institutions offer approximately 125 mini-courses, drawing nearly 3000 students from grades 8 to 11 in Ontario, and secondary levels II to V in Quebec.

Mini-courses are offered in a variety of disciplines, such as information technology, psychology, engineering, journalism, music and law. They are highly interactive; they combine brief presentations, practical exercises, laboratory exercises, group discussions and field expeditions; and they provide an unforgettable learning experience!
