Students Pay to Stay! Every year, tens of thousands of students from around the world are traveling to Canada to study and learn to speak English fluently. And with them, they bring millions of dollars to local economies. Homestay is the type of accommodation most frequently requested and sought after by International Guests. The demand for homestay accommodation often outweighs the supply available to foreign students.
Homestay 101 for Hosts is the only book of its kind available on the market today. This highly informative guide equips potential Hosts with the essential information for getting started and hosting Homestay Guests.
