Students with Special Needs

  • The University of Winnipeg will try to accommodate students with special needs whenever possible. Students with special needs who receive a bursary for the Explore Program, must inform the program as soon the bursary is accepted so that arrangements can be made in time for the start of the program.
  • In the event that there is an Explore Program at another institution better suited to accommodate a special need, students may be directed to that institution as an alternate choice.
  • Only severe food allergies are considered a special need. CMEC will require a medical certificate confirming the allergy. Costs arising from a choice of lifestyle such as vegan diet or organic food are not considered a special need and will not be covered by the Explore program or your homestay family. If you have any dietary concerns at all, please list them on your Explore forms so they can be addressed pre-arrival.

Medical Conditions and Insurance 

  • Students are responsible for all expenses related to pre-existing medical conditions.
  • Appropriate insurance coverage from the student's home province during the Explore Program is the responsibility of the student, and must be in place before participating in the Explore Program.

Arriving in Winnipeg

  • Students must inform the homestay coordinator of all flight information including flight number, flight dates and arrival times as soon as travel arrangements to Winnipeg have been made. Contact The homestay program at
