General Insight
Student Homestay Services Inc. (SHS) helps ease the stress of schools by providing airport pickup and host-family matching. This allows schools to focus on teaching new students instead of worrying about their safety and well-being upon their arrival in Canada.

Our host families are thoroughly interviewed, trained, and monitored. Hosts found to exhibit the utmost professionalism, enthusiasm and safe living conditions are enrolled into our databases as they exemplify everything great about our company and the international experience.
Custom Services
Our rates are the most cost-effective in Toronto. We tailor our programs to the requirements of every school. Contact us for an individualized quote.

Our lines of communication among schools, hosts, and students are always open. We are available seven days a week.

We not only interview our hosts, we also provide tailored workshops to enable them to provide the highest quality service to their students. We provide extensive written support material and maintain quality communications.

We give every opportunity to ensure student comfort:
  • Students receive a welcome letter from their host before their arrival.
  • We phone the homestay on the first business day, and several times throughout their stay.
  • Within the first few days students fill out a questionnaire with the host which helps establish expectations for all concerned.
  • We interview each student at the school to ensure they are happy.
  • Students evaluate their hosts at least once the first month, as well as at the end of the homestay.
  • We make weekly visits to the school to give students the opportunity to ask questions or discuss any matters of concern.
We have a large and growing computerized database of host sites, with hosts rated as to their personality and the quality of their homes.

We can provide airport pick-up and return for your students, at an additional rate, or we can get flight information to the hosts and to your airport service.
