International Housing Options

Are you an International student? Sometimes the best way to introduce yourself to a new country is to experience it through the warmth of a homestay or landing pad. We believe that your host is as important to your experience as your classes.

Students with their Homestay family



Living with a Canadian family will be a very rewarding experience that you will never forget. Once you have your confirmation of who your homestay family is, you will be able to contact them and begin to develop a lifelong friendship.
