The Nova Scotia International Student Program (NSISP) and the HRSB are looking for families interested in learning more about the unique experience of hosting an international student. InternationalStudents

From the NSISP website:

Since 1997, the Nova Scotia International Student Program has welcomed students from around the world into homes across Nova Scotia. Working in partnership with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, students are given the opportunity to improve their English language skills while learning first-hand about life in Canada.


Eligible students come from all over the world and are carefully matched with Nova Scotian host families with the help of our dedicated homestay coordinators. Students range in age from 8-18 years old and stay anywhere from one month to one year.


Participating in the Program can be a life changing experience for both students and their host families.
