Canada Homestay Network (CHN) provides an option for international students who are looking to live with local, participating families. The CHN is happy to offer homestay services to students who will be located in Halifax and Dartmouth. Homestay families are carefully screened, and homes are vetted. Important services such as meal plans and airport pick up are offered and CHN supports you prior and during your stay. Applying for homestay is very simple and can be done through the Canada Homestay Network website 


Dalhousie University in Truro, Mount Saint Vincent University and the Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax have available spots for NSCC students who wish to live in residence.
