Living with a Host Family 
Host families are selected carefully by our local co-ordinators to ensure that they provide a warm, welcoming, safe and healthy environment. They also ensure that the host family's home, lifestyle and interests meet the needs of the participant.

Our home stay co-ordinators offer active support to the participants during their entire stay. They closely follow each student's academic progress, as well as how well he or she is doing socially at school and at home.

Participants, their parents and the host families start communicating well before the beginning of the program, in order for them to get to know each other, exchange information and answer any questions that come up. Communication between parents abroad, the student and his or her host family in Canada, continues throughout his or her stay either by phone or online.


While living in Canada, the cost for medical coverage is included in the program fees.
