Farmstay Program

Program Description

Few Canadians, let alone people from abroad, see the countryside, and experience farm life. Experience Education’s Farmstay Program gives international students the opportunity to do this, and to get a ‘natural’ Canadian experience. 
In Farmstay, students are placed for 2­4 weeks at a farm in the wilderness of BC, Alberta, Ontario, or Quebec. There, they live with a family and assist in the day to day upkeep of their family farm. Students see the great outdoors, get up close and personal with animals, and try Canadian food, fresh out of the ground.

At a Glance

● Farm work and accommodation placements in BC, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec
● All placements are isolated, far from cities, and students will not be able to commute from a city to their farmstay
● Minimum placement is 2 weeks, maximum placement is 4 weeks with a visitor’s visa. Longer placements (at a single homestay or consecutive) are not available.
● All placements are unpaid.
● Students are required to work between 15 and 25 hours per week to help offset the cost of their stay.
● Students must be registered at least 6 weeks in advance of their start date. ● 6 types of placement to choose from ­ all on family farms
● Placements available year round at most locations, apart from a December/January blackout period.
● Use Farmstay_2014.pdf application form, and register students at least 6 weeks in advance of their desired start date. Requirements
