The Global PALS (Peer Advisors Lending Support) Program provides incoming and current international students with the opportunity to connect with an upper year or graduate student who can provide insights and support as you navigate the social, cultural, and academic transition to life at Carleton University and in Ottawa. Global PALS can support you in navigating Ottawa and Carleton resources, student support services, involvement opportunities, Canadian culture, and much more.

Thank you for your interest in the Global PALS program. Registration in this program is now closed for the 2020-2021 academic year. Global Peer Advisors will return in July 2021. If you are hoping to form a peer-to-peer connection during this time, please contact Niamh O’Shea at
