Accommodation with host family or in residence

Our school offers different types of accommodation, including homestays with a English- or French-speaking Canadian host family and a student residence.

Host family

Living with a host family will help you become more familiar with Canadian and Québec culture and allow you practice the language you are studying. Host families generally live no more than 45 minutes from our school.

Using a form that has been completed by the student, we will select a host family that best meets the student’s preferences. A family profile is then sent to the student prior to departure, so that the student can, if he or she wishes, exchange e-mails with the family before his or her arrival.

How to register

“The reception at the YMCA and the choice of my homestay couldn't be better. Staying with this family - Isabel and Terry - was truly a gift because of the affection and respect I felt. The support I received made me appreciate the experience even more, going beyond the limits of a homestay: I felt as though I was an old friend.” Flávio, from Brazil
