Do You Have A Spare Room? Become A Host Family!

Saturday December 4th, 2021, 10:55am


The Greater Essex County District School Board will welcome a number of students from Europe and Asia into our schools at the end of January.  We are asking local families who have a spare bedroom in their homes if they may be interested in hosting a student.

This provides an incredible experience for families to explore new cultures, learn about global issues and travel the world without leaving the comforts of your home.

MLI Homestay offers compensation, and in return you will gain an unforgettable experience of opening your home to an international experience of learning a new culture.

All students will be arriving to Canada with a negative covid test and double vaccinations.  We require that the teens and adults in a host family also be vaccinated.

The requirements are 3 meals a day, a private room with a door, a window, a bed and a desk, and including the student in your family home life.

We have so many wonderful testimonials from past and current hosts and the benefits that come from adding someone new into your home for a high school study period. Whether you have children that are young, teenagers or adult or no children, every student arriving has different needs just as all of our homes are different. Students are enthusiastic to learn about life in Canada and be a part of life here!

Please consider this opportunity! Visit for more information or please reach out to Rippy a [email protected]

Thank you for opening your home to welcome a young person from overseas this winter!  Please spread the word to friends and family – together we are helping young people with their high school education dreams.
