Looking for host families... are you interested?

Dear Families:

Would you consider opening your home to an international student?

Each year, HRCE’s International Services welcomes students from all over the world who would like to attend schools in our region. We’re looking for warm and caring families like yours to provide them with a home away from home.

Hosting an international student is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that gives your family the opportunity to bring the world home. For students, it's a way to learn about the Canadian way of life.

As a host, your family would be matched with a student who will attend your neighbourhood school and participate in your daily routines. The next groups of students will arrive in September 2024 and we’re preparing for their arrival!

What you can expect: 

  • Host families receive a tax-free monthly stipend ($825) to help cover hosting expenses (more for dietary requirements)
  • Students stay for periods of three to ten months.
  • Ongoing support is provided by an experienced Homestay Coordinator; and
  • You will learn about and communicate with your student before their arrival.
