We work with Canada Homestay Network (CHN) to place students into excellent host families in Calgary. This service is available for students in grades 7-12 only.

All CHN host families have had thorough interviews, home inspections, safety checks and reference checks. They are enthusiastic to receive international students and all speak English in the home. Our staff will monitor the well-being of the students in a homestay to ensure there are no issues with the host family and will work with CHN to ensure the student is safe and happy in their environment.


All CHN host family accommodations are located in appealing and safe neighbourhoods that are easily accessible to the school. All accommodations include, at a minimum:

  • a furnished room with a window
  • a bed with clean linen
  • private storage for your belongings
  • access to a shared bathroom with your own clean towels
  • a quiet place to study, usually in your own room.

Once students are matched with their new Canadian family, supervision and support are provided by CHN staff throughout their stay. Students are supported in schools and have access to homestay support 24/7 in the event of a problem or emergency. While living in Calgary, homestay students become a member of their Calgary family.
