English as a Second Language (ESL) homestay programs provide the opportunity for international students to practice their English with their host family as well as providing affordable accommodation while the student is in Canada. Homestay programs provide international students with a room in the home of a Canadian family for a fee. Programs may include room and board, or they may only include the room. ESL homestay programs may be offered by colleges, universities and some community-based language institutes.
