Cultural hotpot! Explore the beauty of untouched Canada
Tips: An Indian boy in a Canadian house was great. Nice people and experience for a foreign student. I had the opportunity to explore the beautiful Cape Breton, interact with hundreds of locals, and understand the economy and hospitality industry. Overall, thoroughly satisfied with the exposure offered by the Government of Nova Scotia and Cape Breton University.
