Community Events




The Nova Scotia International Student Program brings students from around the world to Nova Scotia public schools to learn our language and culture. Be an integral part of a student’s learning experience– become a host family.
This is a great opportunity for your family to experience and share culture first hand. Your family will be matched up with a student and they will participate in your daily family routines.

Host Families receive a tax free monthly stipend to help
cover the cost of food and any extra transportation expense
Students stay for periods of 2 to 10 months
Ongoing support is provided by an experienced Homestay
You will learn about and communicate with your student
before arrival
Host Families are asked to provide a private bedroom, 3
balanced meals a day and inclusion in family activities

Visit our website for more information: www.nsisp.ca

For more information on how to become a host family
