Student Housing

Students will be matched with a great local homestay. This is an amazing way to immerse yourself in Canadian culture, practice your English outside of school, and enjoy a family experience. Homestays include: a comfortable private room, a private or shared bathroom, laundry facilities, Wi-Fi, and three meals a day. For larger groups, students may stay at a local university campus. All student accommodation is easily accessible with public transportation. Our homestay families are committed to making your stay incredible!

Your Home Away From Home! Enjoy a truly multicultural Canadian experience with homestay families coming from a variety of diverse backgrounds. Most students choose this option as it’s more convenient, cost-efficient, and safe, especially for those traveling to a foreign land where they don’t know anyone.

Our experienced Accommodation Manager carefully screens and selects friendly hosts who provide a safe and caring environment. Staying with a host will allow for intercultural exchanges and help you practice your English while learning about Canadian traditions and culture.

This is an easy way to get to know life in a Canadian family by sharing your host mum’s curry and a few stories about life in your own country.
