Homestay families provide international students with a private room and 3 meals a day… But they are so much more! They are a home away from home for the student and communicate regularly with the student’s parents and teachers.
Homestays are arranged through the school authorities. Most school authorities have a homestay coordinator to help find a responsible, enthusiastic and qualified homestay family. Homestay families are carefully selected and their homes are inspected to ensure a good fit for the student.
Fees for arranging homestay placements range from $250-$850 Canadian dollars. Monthly cost for a homestay is approximately $800 Canadian dollars per month.
A few Alberta schools are equipped with dormitory facilities where international students may live while they study. Students in dormitories are usually cared for by a resident supervisor. To determine whether or not dormitory accommodation is available, please contact the local school district.
