Making Friends in Canada

As we have returned to in-person interactions on campus, many of us are looking to meet new friends and build community. After two years of remote learning, making new friends may feel uncomfortable – but the International Student Services Office (ISSO) and Health and Counselling Services (HCS) are here to help!

Join the HCS for the ‘Making Friends in Canada’ workshop. In this 90-minute session, students will:

– Recognize how culture impacts our beliefs and behaviours when making friends.
– Explore 3 main stages of meaningful conversations.
– Identify key campus events and everyday opportunities for starting meaningful conversations.
– Practice skills in a safe environment through one-on-one role playing and scenarios.
