Am I able to use a computer or internet in my homestay family’s house?
Many families have personal computers now. You should ask if it is OK to use the computer, if there is one in your homestay. Please be respectful and do not download programs, videos, photos, etc on to your host family’s computer. Do not change language settings, admin settings or passwords.
If you have your own laptop or mobile device and would like to use the internet, please discuss with your family what the internet usage rules are. Unlimited internet packages are not common in all areas in Canada and most home internet will have a monthly limit. Please speak with your host family about this before downloading large files, streaming videos or games, etc. You may be responsible to pay for charges if the internet use goes past the limit based on your activity
