Toronto Catholic District School Board

Welcome to Canada!


Canada Homestay Network (CHN) manages Homestay for Toronto Catholic District School Board.

In partnership with Toronto Catholic Schools, CHN provides international students with warm and welcoming homestays and related custodianship services so they feel well supported during their program of study in Canada.

If you wish to stay with a Canadian host family, please review the Student Guide, the Student Participation Agreement, and complete our International Student Homestay Application.

For more information about the cost of the program, please contact us and refer to our Payment Policies and Procedures document.

You should start the process for your Study Permit with Immigration Canada at once.


Custodianship Services

The first step is to obtain the Parental Appointment of Custodian form from CHN. Please email our local office and request a copy, citing your Student ID and Reservation ID numbers from your application if possible. This form must be signed and notarized in your home country. Once your application and payments are received, you will be sent the notarized Declaration of Custodianship required by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) along with a confirmation letter containing information regarding your host family.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact us.
