Host International Student Across Red Deer

International students (strictly following government travel requirements and health & safety protocols) are excited to come to Red Deer for RDCRS’s leading-edge education programs, and our dynamic city/outdoor life.   

Consider opening your heart and your home to the next generation of global citizens!

Homestay host families are needed for academic-year placements starting in September 2023. Hosts receive a generous allowance to offset expenses, 24/7 support, special health & safety training, and the opportunity to bring the world to their front door! 

We have openings for long-term and short-term placements. A specific need is for homestay families in Rocky Mountain House, horse-loving families, and sports-minded (specifically hockey and handball) or active families.  

We have students coming from Germany, Bangladesh, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Taiwan, and Vietnam. 

If you have questions about the hosting experience, please contact our homestay partner, Ryanna Hansen who works with our Red Deer office of Canada Homestay Network at or 1-877-441-4443 ext. 2176.
