PALLISER HOMESTAY PROGRAM

What to Expect from your Palliser Homestay Family
Families in Alberta are very diverse. Some homestay families have two parents with children, some have no children, and others have only one parent. What all homestay families have in common is that they are carefully chosen and screened prior to their participation in the homestay program.
Your homestay host family is participating in the program because they want to meet someone from another country. They will welcome you into their home as though you were their own child and will be happy to show you interesting places, introduce you to their family and friends, and share their favourite activities with you.
Many families enjoy doing activities together. In summer they may travel, hike, swim, and have social times together. In winter many families ski, skate, watch movies, or attend various concerts and sports events. Your Palliser homestay family will treat you as one of their own family members, and you will have the same responsibilities as every other member of the family. This could include doing your share of household chores, and respecting the rules of your new family.
