In partnership with The Canada Homestay Network (CHN), Lakehead Public Schools International is looking for caring homestay hosts for international students coming to study at our schools in Thunder Bay.
Being a homestay host is a rewarding experience. When you make the decision to welcome an international student into your home, you make a lasting contribution to your family, your community and the student.
There are year-round hosting opportunities with students of high school age of many nationalities and hosts can welcome short-term or long-term students. Canada Homestay Network provides cultural and first language support to hosts and their students 24/7 and a generous allowance ($775/month) to help offset expenses.
Homestay families get to open their home to the world and learn about different cultures, develop life-long friendships and ensure the local community and economy benefits from a growing international education industry. International students get to learn about Canadian culture in a healthy, caring environment, bring a world-view to their communities back home and a positive introduction to Canadian family life often encourages students to seek to stay and contribute to the community through additional schooling or work.
