Homestay St. Lawrence CollegeHomestay Brockville St Lawrence CollegeHomestay Kingston St. Lawrence College


The Homestay Program is a program where families in Canada open up their home to host international students. Students who live in Homestay become part of the family, have opportunities to practice their language skills, and fully immerse themselves into the Canadian culture.  Homestay is a wonderful opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people, and enrich your Canadian experience! Consider it your home away from home.


The Canada Homestay Network (CHN) manages Homestay for St. Lawrence College. 


In partnership with St. Lawrence College, CHN provides international students with warm and welcoming homestays and related custodianship services so they feel well supported during their program of study in Canada.
