Homestay Hosts

Share a Rich, Cultural Experience

Many students from around the globe and of diverse cultural backgrounds come to study ESL at the University of Regina. Through our Homestay Program, a number of them also choose to live with Canadian families, affording them greater opportunities to communicate in English and enrich their cross-cultural experience.

Homestay host families in turn can share their family traditions with international students, include them in outings and activities, and learn about other cultures.
