Why visit Canada?

Explore buzzing Toronto

Most of our school groups choose to base their educational tour to Canada in Toronto. Canada’s largest city, Toronto is an important cultural and financial centre for North America and is also one of the most multicultural cities in the world.

And from Toronto, you mustn’t miss the opportunity to see Niagara Falls, which lie on the border between the USA and Canada! We can even arrange for you to take a boat trip to see them up close – for many of our groups, this is a highlight of their school trip to Canada!

Rich multiculturalism and bilingualism

Canada is recognised as one of the most multicultural societies on Earth, making it a fantastic choice for a school trip designed to broaden students’ cultural horizons.

In fact, the Canadian government has pursued multiculturalism as policy since the 1970s. And Canada’s long history of immigration has led to the number of cultures represented here.

There are strong English Canadian and French Canadian cultures, with both English and French recognised as official languages.

Discover the New World

On your school trip to Canada, your students will have the exciting opportunity to discover the ‘New World’. At the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, your students can learn more about Canada’s indigenous peoples and their histories and cultures.

Toronto’s cityscape also helps paint a picture of the history of North America. The city’s Distillery District is home to the largest collection of preserved Victorian industrial architecture in North America. And a construction boom in the 1960s and 1970s led to what some have called the ‘Manhattanization’ of the city, whose skyline is now dominated by skyscrapers.

As a general rule, we recommend that you start planning your next school trip 12-18 months before your travel date. This gives you plenty of time to get sign-off from senior leadership and to launch your trip in school to students and parents. Planning early will also mean you have a greater choice of accommodation and travel options.

If you start planning your trip later, don't worry. It is definitely possible to plan a trip in a shorter amount of time. We're here to support you and we have a selection of templates and useful guides to guide you through the process.

Every trip we organise is unique and your itinerary manager will work with you to understand your curriculum and adapt the itinerary to suit your learning objectives. The itineraries featured on our website are just a sample of what's achievable within a given timeframe. The trip duration and the activities and excursions can be tailored to your needs and budget.

You can see examples of the types of accommodation we have available in different destinations on the sample trip pages linked above.

All of our accommodation partners have been chosen based on their suitability for school groups. As a member of the School Travel Forum (STF), you can be certain that all accommodation contracted by us complies with local legislation with respect to fire and general safety, is contracted by trained Halsbury Travel staff or reputable agents, receives a standard audit and risk assessment prior to use by Halsbury Travel and receives a supplementary audit if it is used on five or more occasions in a year.
