Beat the Homesickness

Moving to a new Country can be terrific, you’re in unfamiliar surroundings and you’ll most likely miss your family and friends. Even more so if it’s your first time living away from home. Beat the homesickness with a homestay and you’ll be sure to feel at home straight away. Your host family will be there to welcome you and assist you with all those questions you’ll certainly have, what’s the best way to get to University, cheapest place to shop etc.

Share a meal

Trying new foods is part and parcel of living in another country. Many of our hosts are open to providing evening meals for you during your stay allowing you to sample the local food and brush up on your language skills.

Value for money

Looking for accommodation for a few months at time can be difficult to organise from your home country. Monthly rentals can be hard to secure without documentation, references or transferring deposits via expensive bank transfer. With iHomestay Canada you can view photos, local area information, you can book online and pay and this brings you peace of mind that your accommodation is now sorted.

Immerse yourself in your new culture

When you stay with a host family you really get to know the place. Sure, you can read all about the tourist trail online, but you need to stay in a real home to truly live and breathe your new city. Our hosts will share with you an insight into local life that student residences just don’t offer.
