International Student Info & Form

Welcome to Canada!


We understand that making the transition to living away from family as an international student can be very challenging. Have you found a place that feels like home?

Home Away From Home exists to introduce you to a meaningful friendship with a Canadian family, who will occasionally invite you into their home for a meal or include you in other family activities. We are convinced that the best way to truly experience Canada and understand the culture is to spend time with Canadian families.

Ideally, we would like to connect you and another student with a Canadian family. This is a great opportunity for you to invite a friend to enjoy a Canadian experience together!
