Online classifieds are among the most popular sites to look for accommodations. Always be mindful of scams when using these platforms. When using online classifieds, be sure to use you best judgement and never send money or commit to anything online before seeing the property and reading the details in the lease to avoid any costly mistakes. The sites listed below are among the most popular for homestays. Please use with caution and always ask for help or a second opinion if you find a listing you are interested in.
Homestay is your home away from home! Homestay accommodations are a great way to get the “Canadian” experience if you are a newcomer to Canada. Even if you are not a newcomer to Canada, homestays are also a great cheaper housing alternative for those looking to keep their costs down for living accommodations. Whether short term or longer, if you would like to live with another family when living off-campus, here are a few links to homestay providers. Many options allow you to connect with your potential hosts in advance of making a decision to make sure it’s the best fit. The following are among the most popular homestay options in Canada.
