Accommodation Service

Host Family Accommodation

Homestay is an opportunity to stay with a Canadian family. It allows a student to observe and to learn about Canadian culture by participating in normal day to day activities. We visit all of the homes when they apply to become host families. We look for host families that are friendly and happy, and who are interested in meeting people from other countries.

We also look for conveniences such as internet, as well as proximity to the school where the student will study. Not all people who apply are chosen as host families. Only those people who show they are genuinely concerned about the student’s well being are given the opportunity to host. After the student is placed with the family we keep in touch with the student and with the family who is hosting the student, making sure they are all happy with the service provided.
