The English Language Program is continuously looking for warm, friendly families who would like to open their homes to our students. The English Language Program is a very special time for our students. Some students are seasoned travellers, but for others it is their first time away from home and our host families play an important role in their experience.
As a Homestay family, you will be offering students the unique opportunity to experience Western Canadian culture first hand. You will also benefit from learning about them, their countries, and their cultures. Remuneration is provided on a per-student basis.
Many of our host families are…
Families who want their children to get to know people form other cultures.
Hosts who want to share their Canadian experience
Hosts who may have done homestay or studied abroad and want to “give back"
As a homestay family, you are responsible for providing the following...
A private, single bedroom with a door and a window.
A closet, a drawer, curtains, beddings, a desk, a desk chair, a desk lamp, a garbage bin and a laundry basket.
A private or shared bathroom.
Laundry facilities that are not coin operated (Students to be able to use both the washer and the dryer once a week with a full cycle).
Three meals a day, seven days a week (with one prepared meal by host family - i.e. dinner).
