Welcome Home in Calgary
We are a small, but very well-known and well-established homestay service operating in Calgary since 1999. Homestay Calgary provides friendly, personalized service and has hosted hundreds of visitors from 50 different countries all across the globe. Technically, we are not an agent, since we receive no fees from schools, other agencies, or from our families. We do charge students a nominal, non-refundable placement fee (see Our Services: Fees) which includes a wide range of services from airport pick up to assistance in getting you settled in your new environment. We are basically a non-profit organization operated by Canadians and an ever-changing host of international student volunteers.
Our mandate is to ensure that every student we facilitate has a positive, upbuilding experience for studying or working in Canada. We choose our families carefully, and we like to think that our families are the best at providing a safe, warm stable environment for learning and adjusting to life in a different country.
