Academic Advising

Our staff are always on hand to offer guidance and advice on any academic issues you may have.

University and College Placement

Graduate applications are often complicated and difficult to complete, and when you apply to graduate school you want your application to stand out. Let one of our graduate counsellors find the best suited graduate program for you and guide you through the full application process.

High-school Placement and Support

Along with our partner organizations, we help prospective school students find the right place for them. Once they are enrolled in the school of their choice, we help you plan a program of after school support to suit your academic needs.

Custodianship for Minor Students

We offer a safe and welcoming environment for younger students. Find peace of mind by allowing our trusted and experienced custodians take care of your loved ones.

Airport pick-up

Give yourself peace of mind by using our airport pick up service. We offer a ride from the airport, regardless of when you arrive, and a safe family setting to stay in for as long as you need.

Apartment or House Rental

As Halifax is the home of more than 40,000 students a year at our many universities and colleges, there are many choices open to you. There are a wide variety of options, including furnished apartments, unfurnished apartments, university residences, hotels and even houses for rent. We hire a company that specializes in finding you the right housing choice, along with providing other necessary settlement services.


We carefully choose homestay families who wish to welcome international students into their homes and hearts. Living with a Canadian family allows you to practice your English, learn Canadian culture and provides extra support as you adjust to a new life in Canada. You will get a private room, a space to study and 3 meals a day, while being able to create great new memories for life.
