NS International Student Program

Bring the World Home


The Nova Scotia International Student Program (NSISP) was founded as a way for students from around the world to learn more about the language and culture of Nova Scotia. Since 1997, NSISP has welcomed thousands of students and has grown to include over 800 host families in communities across the province.
Hosting an international student means the opportunity to bring the world home. The learning you will gain and the connections you will make will be a life changing experience for your whole family. When you invite an international student into your home, you’re not just getting a houseguest... you’re gaining a family member.
