Integrated Canadian Experience (ICE)

The York School’s unique Integrated Canadian Experience (ICE) programme is an innovative combined study of Canadian history, geography, civics and literature undertaken by all Grade 9 students.

Our students uncover the story of Canada and its inhabitants by combining field research with classroom learning, developing observational, inquiry and communication skills. Every experience ICE students undertake is designed to provide first-hand evidence, which students use to guide their investigations and support their evolving ideas about Canada.

ICE tripes take place in Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta and the Maritimes.
