Halifax is the capital city of our province, Nova Scotia.  With a smaller population of 415,000, there is always plenty of room for new students to join us. Throughout the year there are endless options to enjoy live music, art, film, sports, culture,  festivals, shopping, food, sunsets and warm energy! We have a vibrant art scene, and as a result of having so many universities, a large portion of our population is student based. The fun is never ending for students in Halifax. 


Our homestay service is of the highest quality, offering accommodation with various options

with special attention to safety and comfort. After completing the homestay forms, we

will provide you with information about accommodation available to suit your needs. Our 

homestay program costs $900 CDN per month, which includes 3 meals a day. A $200 non-refundable

application fee will be applied to your overall cost. A host family will be chosen and will provide
