April 21, 2023 – Government of PEI: Wayne and Veronica Guindon love hosting family and friends in their home.
When their kids grew up and moved out, they thought it would be a great opportunity to welcome guests on a more long-term basis, which is why they decided to become a host family for international students.
“It was a straight forward but thorough process to become a host family, which is exactly what we would want if our kids were staying with someone. We contacted Study Abroad Canada, provided the appropriate information about ourselves and arranged for a home visit. Once we were approved, they matched us with our first international students in 2020,” explains Wayne.
They have since hosted students from Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Mexico.
The Guindons love to learn and share culture with their students.
