About Us

Elite Canadian Homestay was founded on February 1, 2008 by Louise Kaye. Elite was created to provide international students with quality host families and programs previously provided by Intrax Canada where Mrs. Kaye had worked for over 15 years. The staff of Elite previously provided these services to Intrax and has over 60 years of combined experience in the homestay business. Elite staff is looking forward to providing the same quality programs. We believe in the virtues of integrity and hard work.

We are a team committed to providing international students with the best possible program and host family. We are looking forward to meeting you and making you part of the Elite family.

Students will live with Canadian host families as a member of their family, experiencing Canadian culture and cuisine, engaging in meaningful conversations and establishing life-long friendships. We want your stay in Canada to be enjoyable and we are here to serve you, the student. We desire to encourage a better understanding between the different cultures and peoples of this world, one student at a time.

Mrs. Kaye is supported by a network of professional Program/Placement Coordinators. The coordinators are all experienced staff; committed to ensuring the students stay in safe, secure, quality homes and enjoy their program in Canada. The coordinators work directly with the students, greeting them at the airport, introducing the student to the Host Family, and staying in contact with the students during their stay in Canada. Prior to arrival the Coordinator will choose a Host Family for a Student, based on the information provided by the student on their Application. Coordinators live in the same community as the student and are available to help students adjust to their life in Canada.

In addition, we provide trained certified Program Teachers. Elite Teachers receive additional training to provide our students with ESL classes designed to make the most of your time in Canada. All classes are planned to ensure your other activities are enjoyed to the maximum.
