The New Brunswick International Student Program (NBISP) welcomes students between the ages of 11 and 18 from all points of the globe. Our English school system offers an impressive variety of programs and up-to-date classroom technology. The NBISP is managed through Atlantic Education International Inc. AEI was created in 1997 by the province of New Brunswick to deliver real education opportunities to the world community through the Department of Education.

Visiting students live with a host family, attend classes with New Brunswick students and participate in extra-curricular and community activities. Fully immersed in the English language, international students develop their language skills and create new and lasting friendships.

Become a Host Family – Opportunities exist to host students in grades 6-12, for varying lengths of time.  Financial compensation is paid to homestay families


Become a Respite Provider – Opportunities exist to provide weekend or holiday homestay for students when their host families are away.  Financial compensation is paid for respite care.


Become a Volunteer – share your expertise and passion with international students.  Offer to teach a skill or lead a group in an activity that will enrich an international student’s experience!


Economic Benefits – research indicates that every full-time student contributes $25,000 to the community. 


Relationship Building – a key to a successful international experience is establishing strong bonds with family and peers.  As a result of these positive relationships, more and more students are considering NB a place to live.
