Support and Community Initiatives

Friendship Families

Friendship Families

The Friendship Families program connects international students with Canadian host families for a rich cultural exchange. Students provide information like dietary preferences and study details to ensure a good match. Matched students will enjoy meals, transportation, and an introduction to Canadian traditions with vetted host families, experiencing unique holiday meals that showcase Canada's diverse customs.

Career Mentorship

Career Mentorship

The Career Mentorship program addresses the crucial need for international students to find jobs by pairing them with experienced professionals in their field. Participants will learn about Canadian work culture, networking, and how to reach their potential in the job market through five weekly sessions. Each session lasts 45-60 minutes, offering valuable insights and confidence-building opportunities.

SpacesShared

SpacesShared

SpacesShared transforms living arrangements by matching students with safe, affordable housing from hosts with spare bedrooms. Partnering with Helping International Students, we connect international students with caring older adults. Hosting offers supplemental income, meaningful relationships, and extra help around the house, while addressing housing and support crises in Canada.
