Canada Homestay Network
For more than 25 years, Canada Homestay Network (CHN) has provided excellent homestay experiences for international students and their Canadian host families. How do we do it? We created the kinds of programs and support we would want for our own loved ones.
CHN is Canada’s premier homestay provider, having served over 75,000 students across Canada. All of our host families are rigorously screened with home inspections and background checks. Our careful matching process ensures you get just the right family to fit your interests.
Have a question? Our support system is cutting edge. Our Relationship Managers are available to you by chat, text, email, phone, or in-person as needed. We offer emergency assistance and counselling with mental health professionals 24/7.
Your Home Away From Home
Homestay is the perfect start to your Canadian experience. Your host family will give you a soft landing and help you get established in Canada with basics like transit planning and accounts set up, orientation in the city, and other tips and help to get you situated in your new community. Your hosts are your first social contacts, and can help you practice English and learn about local customs quickly.
CHN offers a range of meal plans and other matching specifications to ensure your homestay placement fits your needs and budget. Our placements include:
- Flexible study blocks, short-term & long-term placements
- Personalized host-student matching based on your preferences
- A private, furnished room with a quiet place to study
- A caring Canadian family interested in helping you succeed
- Unlimited student and host support
- Optional airport pick up & return
- Optional custodianship for underage students
- Flexible payment options
We invite you to become a part of the CHN family!
