Why choose a Home Stay in Calgary

Calgary is the largest city in the Canadian province of Alberta. Surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, Calgary is a must see destination about one hour and 30 minutes from the Banff National Park that is 26 square kilometers of pine tree forests, hot screens and magnificent lakes full of wild life.

The city of Calgary is considered one of the best cities in the world to live. We have a variety of host families from different cultural backgrounds living in the beautiful communities in the city. When you choose to stay with a host family here you have the opportunity to experience the multicultural Canadian lifestyle and share your own culture with a friendly, warm family who will be your own for the time you live here. Improve your English, make friends and enjoy an amazing time in Calgary as a member of a family that will make you feel home away from home.


The area

We do not have home stays downtown as families usually chose to live in the suburbs of Calgary. Most residences downtown are apartments.
