Medicine Hat families are generously sharing their homes and their lives with international students for various reasons. Some want to learn about new cultures, some want to enrich their family’s lives by learning from others and some simply want to do what they can to help international students- every family is different. Some are formal and some are more relaxed. Please enjoy your differences and learn from them.
Your Homestay family will want to share Canadian culture with you. They will also want to learn about your home, your family and your culture. Please remember that you will be a part of their family, which means that you will have to adjust to the way your Homestay family lives and interacts with each other. This may also include having to participate in family outings or having to do your share of the household chores! A successful Homestay experience depends a lot on your attitude and willingness to try new things and acceptance of cultural difference.
Please take time to review the “What to Expect in Homestay Guide” before completing the application.
Thank you for choosing the Medicine Hat College Homestay program. We look forward to welcoming you to Medicine Hat.
