Host Families

Become a Host Family, Help an International Student

The Nova Scotia International Student Program has launched Bring Home the World, a campaign to bring more awareness about opportunities to host students to more families and communities across the province.

International Services is looking for warm and caring host families for international students attending schools within the Halifax Regional Centre for Education.

Hosting a student is an exciting adventure that enriches your family's life and brings a world of new ideas and experiences right to your doorstep. Host Families are supported by a Homestay Coordinator and financial assistance is provided during the student's stay ($775 tax free per month).

Host families are required for students who are in Grades 7 to 12.
