One of the key activities of the MFA is facilitating a homestay program for a few days each summer for ten citizen delegates from Kariya.
There is currently an URGENT need for host families to continue this program.
Hosting is a great way to learn about Japanese culture, make a new friend and help promote Mississauga and Canada. Host families must be able to provide a bedroom for approximately 5 nights, transportation, either by car or bus, to various activities and be willing to take your guest on an outing on the “free day.”
This year the delegation will arrive July 6 and depart on July 11.
Host families are not paid but do receive a number of benefits including various lunches, dinners and an expenses paid trip to Niagara Falls. Please consider hosting so we can continue to provide this activity to our sister city citizens.
