Sign Up To Be a Guest

If you are a new immigrant, international student or new immigrant family looking to meet new people and experience Nova Scotia culture please sign up as a guest. There is no cost, you will meet a kind family, you can practice your English, you can bring a friend and you won't have to go far!

Answer a few questions about when you are available and the number of people in your family. We’ll use this information to find a match based on availability, and shared characteristics like ages of family members, languages spoken, hobbies and interests.

You can also ask your settlement worker to help you fill out the information if you have any questions.

When we make the match, we’ll send you and your host family an email introducing you to one another. Your host family will then email or call you to arrange the details - this is an opportunity to talk with them about transportation and any food or alcohol restrictions.

On the day of the dinner, you’ll head over to your hosts house and share Thanksgiving dinner.

Sign up to be a guest family for Thanksgiving.
