Become a Homestay Host!

We at the Association for New Canadians are excited to collaborate with the Department of Immigration, Population Growth and Skills on an innovative, province-wide hosting initiative.

Interested in becoming a Homestay Host?

The Homestay Hosting Program invites Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to host Ukrainian newcomers as they navigate through their settlement journey to “set roots” and make this province their home.

Your decision to host can improve the lives of Ukrainian families in need. Approved host families will receive $1,000 monthly for up to five (5) months for hosting, but that’s not the only reward…

Host families can…

  • Support newcomer’s involvement and participation within communities
  • Provide opportunities to share experiences and improve language skills
  • Act as guide to help Ukrainians integrate into NL/Canadian society
  • Make lifelong friends
  • Share knowledge on local jobs, culture, geography, what makes their community unique., etc.
  • And more….
