For example, financially, the Federal Government subsidises the cost of such exchanges and through SEVEC supported this research.
The questionnaire respondents were participating in a Canadian two-week intracountry bilingual exchange program where one week was spent in the second language community and the other week was spent in the first language community hosting a participant from the second language community as organised by their teachers with the support of SEVEC. The Anglophone participants spent a week in Quebec, Canada, the Francophones in Anglophone communities in four different provinces in Canada.

at other schools she has worked at, but this is the first exchange she's been involved with, and the first for students at Nisto Awasisak, a new school only in its second year of operation.
