Homestay in Quebec City with local families

Host families consist of local francophone families, selected to ensure an optimal, culturally rich immersion experience. Students are matched with a family by the accommodation coordinator based on their interests and profile, and the information she receives from students through the application form. Meals are included with accommodation in a host family. The teenage programs include 3 meals per day.

One room is shared by two students of the same gender and same age.

Off-campus student residence

The off-campus residence is located 10 minutes from Collège Mérici by public transport. There is also a bicycle path connecting the residence and the school. Bicycles are available at the residence. The off-campus residence is conveniently located near a shopping complex with a supermarket, restaurants, and cafes.
