Become a Host Family for an International Student

The homestay program is the heartbeat of the Nova Scotia International Program experience.  For students it's a way to learn about the Canadian way of life.  For host families, it's an opportunity to bring the world home and gain a new family member.

Since 1997, the Nova Scotia International Student Program has welcomed students from around the world into homes across Nova Scotia. Working in partnership with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, students are given the opportunity to improve their English language skills while learning first-hand about life in Canada.

Eligible students come from all over the world and are carefully matched with Nova Scotian host families with the help of our dedicated homestay coordinators. Students range in age from 8-18 years old and stay anywhere from one month to one year. Participating in the Program can be a life changing experience for both students and their host families. Get involved today!

Attendance Policy

The Chignecto-Central Regional School Board recognizes that regular student attendance and punctuality are among the necessary essential components for student success. CCRSB is committed to full implementation of sections 24 – 26, 38 and 116 of the Nova Scotia Education Act which clearly defines student attendance as a responsibility that is shared among parents/guardians, students, teachers, principals, and the school board.

Effective September 1, 2011, CCRSB is implementing the Nova Scotia High School Credit Attendance Pilot in grades 10 to 12. This a two-year pilot, running from September 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013, where a high school student may lose eligibility to be granted credit for a course if he/she is not present in class for at least 80% of the course.
