Often the bonds that are made between International Students and their homestay families endure many years, and are maintained through letters and email.

A Home Away From Home

An International Student lives with an English-speaking Canadian Homestay family who takes the place of the student’s natural family for a time. The Homestay family also plays an important role in the improvement of the student’s English and understanding of Canadian culture.

The Homestay Will:

  • Assume responsibility for the care of the student
  • Provide encouragement and support
  • Provide all meals
  • Provide a private room that is warm, clean, and that has a study desk.
  • Act on behalf of the parent in the case of an emergency
