All potential exchange applicants should take the time to carefully review our policies before applying for an exchange program with us.
Vulnerable Sector Screening Policy
In order to participate in an ISE exchange program, all members of the exchange applicant’s household who are 18 years of age and over must apply for a Vulnerable Sector Screening with their local police department and submit to the ISE office upon receipt.
Hospitality Obligation Policy
All ISE exchange programs are reciprocal in nature, so the applicant and applicant’s family must be willing and prepared to host a visiting student for the time designated.
Travel Documentation Policy
In compliance with the rules enforced by the airlines, all ISE exchange participants are responsible for ensuring they have the documentation they will need in order to travel to and from Europe. Participants who are Canadian citizens require a passport valid at least three months past their return date. All other participants are responsible for determining what documentation they will require.
Student Internal Travel Policy
Beginning with the 2016-2017 exchange year, all exchanges will be based into and out of Toronto. Participants who opt to book domestic flights to/from Toronto are responsible for doing so themselves, at their own expense and their own risk. These participants are also responsible for informing the ISE office of their flight details.
Travel Deviation Policy
It is the policy of ISE Ontario not to permit travel deviations that extend beyond the scheduled program.
It is the policy of ISE Ontario to cancel or postpone a program in certain circumstances.
It is the policy of ISE Ontario to issue full refunds of application fees or payments in certain circumstances, and to issue partial refunds in others.
