Student Guide Program in France

Veterans Affairs Canada employs Canadian students as guides year round at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial and the Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial.

This is a unique opportunity to travel, live and work in France for a period of four months. Student guides are required to provide interpretation of the preserved battlefield and underground tunnels in both official languages. In addition, guides are expected to provide information and answer questions from visitors with respect to Canadian military history and points of interest in the region.
