Homestay plays a key role in the international student experience and greatly improves the overall success of these students. The primary purpose of homestay placement is to provide international students with the opportunity to experience life with a Canadian family while developing their English language skills in a welcoming and comfortable home environment. While living in a homestay, international students learn and begin to adapt to Canadian culture and develop lifelong friendships.
