Host Families Urgently Needed

Palliser Regional Schools offers an International Education Program for students from around the world to have the opportunity to come and study in Canada.  This year, Palliser is/will be hosting students from Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Chile, Spain, Germany, Japan, China, Philippines, Thailand, Korea, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, and Spain.  Palliser’s program has become widely recognized by international agencies.  The popularity and success of our program is due in part to the incredible support our program has received from our wonderful host families.   Without this continued support, our program would not exist. 

On November 17, 2018, Palliser will be welcoming a group of 26 students (ages 12-17) plus three chaperones (two males – 26 & 32 yrs old; one female – 50 yrs. old) from Colombia (for one month – departing on December 15, 2018).  We are looking for families that may be interested in hosting one of these students for the time period specified.   

The students will require host families who are willing to provide food, lodging and a supportive home life during their stay.  Each host family will be paid $750 per month to support the student’s needs.

One of the great benefits of being a homestay family is the opportunity to build connections with a family from another country and experience southern Alberta through the eyes of someone seeing our way of life for the first time.

Host families will need to submit a home stay application form, provide a criminal record check for all individuals over the age of 18 residing in the home and be available for an on-site visit to your home by a Palliser home stay representative.

If you’re interested becoming a host family, please contact Barb McDonald at the division office at    587-486-0320 (direct office line) 403-382-9499 (cell) or via email to

Thank you.
