Eligible students come from all over the world and are carefully matched with Nova Scotia host families with the help of our dedicated homestay coordinators. Students range in age from 8-18 years old and stay anywhere from one month to one year. Host families are paid to host the international students; amounts vary based on length of stay.

Participating in the Program can be a life changing experience for both students and their host families. Get involved today!

We are looking for placements for the following:

  • CCRSB are expecting 100 Japanese high school students from November 28th- December 3rd 2016
  • A small group of high school students from Turkey are arriving for a short term ( one month)
  • Applications for three month (short term) students from September to November each fall semester.
  • Interns (university students) arrive every January for six weeks and work in elementary, junior and senior high schools seeking to improve their English as they study to become teachers in their own country.
