Are you interested in learning about another culture? Do you want to make lifelong connections with people from around the world? Become a homestay family for IGK!
You can share your family recipes with them, teach them how to navigate the public transit system, and give them an understanding of life in Canada. All the while, you will learn more about your student’s culture and potentially gain a new addition to your family!
Host families at IGK are flexible, open-minded, and communicative with our international students. This experience is a win-win situation for both host families and students to have intercultural interactions and experiences together.
We make sure our host families interact with our students and share day to day activities with them.
All our homestay families are located in safe neighborhoods. We select families who can offer clean and organized rooms in suitable conditions for the student to rest, study, and feel at home.
Accessible locations to public transit: Accommodations need to be close to public transportation with a maximum commuting time of 55 minutes to the school. On the first day of school, hosts are encouraged to show students bus/train stops and how to use public transportation.
