Be part of the Canada Homestay Network (CHN) family
We are delighted that you are thinking of visiting us. There is a lot to discover and enjoy in our country. We can help you make your experience here full of happy memories.
Our secret is simple:
We believe that international students and their Canadian hosts – through their mutual caring, education and travel – can make a difference in our world …
by helping to improve understanding and acceptance of one another;
by celebrating the differences among us all, and
by reducing ignorance, fear and prejudice.
CHN hosts are carefully screened, including reference checks, criminal record checks and interviews.
CHN’s application and matching process helps pair students to the right host.
You are never alone! CHN provides students and their hosts with 24/7/365 first-language support.
CHN fees are less expensive than on-campus options and often include meal plans and amenities like wifi.
Your homestay hosts will include you in meaningful family time including meals, conversations and excursions.
