Become a Homestay Family
As a host family for Saanich International Student Program, you become the "home away from home" for an international student. By welcoming an international student into your home and treating them as a valued member of your family, your family is offering the Canadian family life expanding their understanding of Canadian culture. International students in turn, expand your understanding and acceptance of other nationalities, cultures, customs and beliefs. Host families and their students often develop a strong relationship that can last a lifetime. Many of our host families are still in touch with their former students and have even made trips to visit them in their home countries!
