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.
