Our Mission

On behalf of the entire Open Arms Committee executive team, we would like to thank you for choosing Schulich as your exchange location and welcome you to Canada! The OAC facilitates the transition of incoming BBA exchange students at the Schulich School of Business with the goal to provide you relevant information to help you settle in and make the most out of your new home here in Toronto.

On this website, you will find information on various things we thought would be useful before and during your stay in Canada. In addition, we have planned some great events for you this semester but if you would like to make any suggestions about which places you would like to see or things you would like to do, we’d love to hear them!

 If you have any other general questions, feel free to e-mail us at [email protected] or contact any of the executives and we will be happy to help you out.
