    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 experience this rich and exciting period through a range of activities designed to educate first grade to Grade 12 students about the dramatic lives of the Voyageurs, at work and at play – and these explorers’ contributions to the settlement of the West.

    Like our country, Canada Life was built by those with adventurous hearts and pioneering spirits. We’ve grown and prospered with Manitoba since 1891, when our nation-wide business was founded here.

    We are proud to be associated with a Winnipeg winter tradition, the 2020 Festival du Voyageur.

    Bon Festival!
