At the heart of the Nova Scotia International Student Program is the homestay program—an important part of a student’s participation in the Nova Scotia International Student Program. Living with a host family is the best way to learn English and experience Canadian culture. When seeking host families for the NSISP, the goal is to create relationships. 

This is kept in mind throughout our recruitment and screening process. The NSISP strives to go above and beyond simply providing a place for the student to stay. They want to provide a Canadian home that will offer guidance and understanding and will be a home away from home for the student.

Become a Host Family

When you host an international student you may be surprised by how your family will grow.
