    The Canada Life School Program offers students an educational voyage to an important era in Western Canada’s history — the fur trade.

    We invite you and your students to engage with the cultures, stories and languages of our ancestors. Designed to educate students in Grades 1 to 12, the program will explore the dramatic day-to-day lives of the Voyageurs through song, dance, art, sport, and historical interpretation.

    At Canada Life, we’re helping communities reach their potential, every day. Through working together with Festival du Voyageur, we’re engaging new generations of voyageurs, while shining a light on our storied past. Like our country, our company was built by those with adventurous hearts and pioneering spirits, which is why we’ve grown and prospered with Manitoba since 1891.

    We’re proud to continue our support for such a longstanding, Winnipeg winter tradition. Bon Festival! Hé ho!
