Global Peer Advisors Lending Support (PALS) Program

Global Peer Advisors are upper year and graduate-level international Ravens who are here to support you! They lend support to international students who have questions or want extra guidance on social and cultural topics during their studies at Carleton.

Through the Global PALS program, you can gain support and guidance on:

  • Life in Ottawa
  • Making friends
  • Getting involved on campus
  • Carleton resources and student supports
  • Canadian culture
  • And more!

International students can have questions at any time in their university journey. As a result, the Global PALS program is open to all Carleton international students. This includes current undergraduate and graduate students.

What Participants Can Expect in Summer 2022

Through the Global PALS program, you can expect:

  • To connect with an upper year international student via email or virtual Navigation Meetings
  • Navigation Meetings provide:
    • Answers to your questions about Ottawa, Canadian culture, campus life, and difficulties you could experience as an international student
    • Timely tips to prepare for possible stressors throughout the year
  • Flexible participation: some students find the information they want in one session, while others prefer to connect with a Global Peer Advisor more than once.
