Homestay accommodation

Staying with a Host Family is an ideal way to experience a new way of life and to improve all aspects of English language communication. Friendly, helpful families make your stay in Canada more enjoyable and enrich your cultural experience while helping you to practice and improve your English.

Host families have been selected for their interests, friendliness, safe neighbourhoods, convenience to transportation, and comfortable homes. All homes offer you a private bedroom, three meals a day, and access to shared TV, telephone, and laundry.

Homestay Rules

Each family has its own house rules regarding smoking, alcohol consumption, student responsibilities, cleaning, security, noise, friends visiting, telephone use, meal times, etc. Discuss these with your family.

Most Canadian families do not allow smoking in their homes. Some allow smoking outside the house. Please inform us if you smoke and check your booking before arriving.

Please try to discuss any requests or problems you have with your family. Contact CSLI if you need assistance. Students are relocated if complaints are justifiable.
