We would like to thank RBC Foundation, the SM Blair Foundation, and the Canada Summer Jobs Program (a program of the Government of Canada - Employment and Social Development Canada) for their support of our Experience North program. Without this generous support we would not be able to offer these unique opportunities for youth in Northern Ontario.
Thank You to our Sponsors

– Mateo Orrantia (Marathon)
"This summer placement has allowed me to spend my weekdays learning about the regions of Northern Ontario and my weekends out exploring them – I couldn’t ask for anything more. "
