The Festival du Voyageur Great-West Life School Program, through its many workshops and activities, offers your students a front row ticket to a unique learning experience on the historic character of the voyageur and their day-to-day life. Activities are open to all ages, from first grade students to senior students. Since 1987, an average of 12,000 students attend the Great-West Life School Program every year. We wish to thank you, devoted teachers, for believing in this Program and offering your students the opportunity to learn more about the history of Manitoba.

The Great-West Life School Program offers a basic package of activities that are repeated annually. These activities are very well anchored in the history and folklore of the fur trading period and/or are the most in-demand activities. Around this basic package are other related themes and activities presented in rotation every few years, thereby offering greater variety over time.

MESSAGE FROM GREAT-WEST LIFE

The Great-West Life School Program offers students an educational voyage to an important era in Western Canada’s history, the fur trade.

We invite you and your students to experience this rich and exciting period through a range of activities designed to educate first grade to Grade 12 students about the dramatic lives of the Voyageurs, at work and at play – and these explorers’ contributions to the settlement of the West.

Like our country, Great-West Life was built by those with adventurous hearts and pioneering spirits. We’ve grown and prospered with Manitoba since 1891, when our nation-wide business was founded here.

We are proud to be associated with a Winnipeg winter tradition, the 2017 Festival du Voyageur.

Bon Festival!
