CAN YOU HOST AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT?




Every year, St. James-Assiniboia School Division hosts students from all over the world who come to study
for a semester or a full school year. These students live with local families who welcome
them into their family life while they are studying here. Living with a Canadian family helps
the student learn English and about Canadian culture, and gives the family a chance to
experience another culture as well.If you are interested in learning more about hosting an international student, please contact
the International Students Office at 204-837-1331.
