Find your fit with CHN

Our History

The Canada Homestay Network is a non-profit society founded by the Wilson family in 1995.

Over the years we’ve served tens of thousands of students from more than 70 countries, individually and in groups, aged 10 to 75, with programs in over 40 communities across Canada from Halifax to Victoria.

In any successful and growing organization, people make the difference. Our team is comprised of individuals dedicated to supporting one another. When you work with CHN, you work with a network of homestay professionals. Our combined experience of matching tens of thousands of students over the last 25+ years lends our whole team the credibility and expertise that has earned us a reputation for excellence and professionalism that is unmatched in our industry.
