Exchange student in need of a home
Submitted By Greg Macmillan on Thursday, July 29, 2021
Hello Hockey Families,
We have been asked to spread the word on a young lady from Sweden hoping to come to Huntsville for this school year in need of accommodations.
Here is the information from youth education services.


YES Canada student exchange is seeking a family to host an international high school student from Sweden. Elvira is a 17 year old girl who will be attending Huntsville High School beginning this September and departing end of June 2022. Elvira is happy to live with 2 different families for 5 months each, or if a family chooses to host her for 10 months, that would be fantastic as well. Host families are responsible for providing three meals a day in a safe and nurturing environment. Host families will be compensated with a monthly stipend.

Students are required to comply with all Government of Canada and Public Health requirements during Covid-19 including any testing and quarantine requirements both prior to departure and upon arrival in Canada. Additionally, protocols and expectations regarding COVID-19 safety are provided to both the student and host family throughout the process - including prior to arrival and throughout the program. The YES Canada team are available to answer questions and provide information.

These exchanges are important as they connect individuals and cultures and remind us of the common interests, passions and goals. It is also a great way to establish life-long friendships and connections.

If you are interested in hosting an international high school student or would like to learn more about YES Canada's homestay program, please contact [email protected]ca or call 416-623-6220 ext. 403.


Please see more information about Elvira and the program in the attached PDF.
