The Embassy of Canada has announced that 150 young people (ages 15 through 30) affected by the March 11th disaster will receive round-trip air transportation, one-month of language training, accommodation in a home or dormitory, and traveller's insurance – all free of charge. The initiative has been made possible by Samantha Thavasa Japan Limited, in-kind contributions from Languages Canada (an accredited association of language schools), and the cooperation of Air Canada.
Applications are already being accepted and travel to Canada will commence in October this year.
