Becoming a Canadian Host Family:

If you have ever wondered what other cultures are like, how they cook, educate their children or what is important to them and their families, hosting a foreign student can answer these and many more questions.

Providing an international student with a safe and comfortable place to live and learn is a unique opportunity to learn about people from around the world. Homestay is a wonderful way for students to improve their English, learn more about Canadian culture and meet wonderful new people. Students interested in living in a homestay must stay at least a four week period. 

The most important criteria we look for in a host family is a desire to share their time and interests with an international student. Hosting a student requires a lot of time and commitment. Bowers Homestay will make the necessary security checks.

Canadian families wanting to host students must provide a student with a private room, furnished with a bed, dresser, desk and closet space. Students will require two nutritional meals daily.

Students must be included in family activities on a regular basis. 

Host families are paid by the students directly every four week period.

Host families are paid only for the time the student resides in their home.

Bowers Homestay students come from all around the world. Their length of stay varies. Hosts are informed of the approx length of stay and other student details when we receive a booking from the individual student.

Only long-term hosts will be required to pay a $45.00 
annual listing fee.
