“95% of international students recommend Canada as a student destination” Canadian Bureau for International Education

Discover Canada’s beautiful and diverse landscapes and their stunning transitions throughout our four distinct seasons. Our welcoming culture will charm you and your new relationships will last a lifetime. Lovers of nature, lakes and the great outdoors will be delighted by the diversity of Canada’s landscapes, which changes as the seasons come and go. Placements are in the countryside in small, friendly and safe communities. Perfect your English and make new friends in a multicultural and welcoming environment! Placements in the SW Global Choice program are now in Ontario only . We are proud to partner with Canada Homestay Network and Upper Canada School District. With their coordination and support, this experience fosters life-long learning through creative and challenging learning experiences. Our schools are situated across Eastern Ontario in rural communities and towns. These regions provide multiple opportunities for students to develop their skills and leadership through sports teams and after school clubs. Students of the Global Choice Canadian experience will dive into the local culture, customs and language by living with a Canadian homestay family, carefully chosen by our regional Canadian partner. After careful inspection and approval, homestay hosts provide students with a safe and nurturing home environment and will receive monthly compensation to cover the additional expenses they incur by hosting a student.
