Stays in Quebec

Welcome to Quebec

The objective of the S.L.I. program, to foster goodwill and international understanding through positive homestay experiences, has two aspects. The first will be the success in your international, cross-cultural experience. The second aspect will be your personal growth, or self-awareness, as a person. It is the combination of understanding and appreciating your own culture as well as the one of your host family that will contribute to a successful stay in Québec. The international handbook will be given to you after your application, and you will be able to find many answers to your questions concerning culture and language shock. YOUR HOST FAMILY Your family may be very average, not wealthy, by Canadian standards. An “ideal” host family does not exist. Every effort has been made to match you with you Host Family based on your preferences and interests and those of your Host Family. YOUR HIGH SCHOOL One of your most important tasks is to be a goodwill ambassador in your new school. A high level of participation in your high school and extra-curricular activities will greatly enhance the success of your overall experience as an exchange student.
