Home for the Holidays with Lakehead University International

Are you interested in spreading some holiday joy and opening up your home to an International Student(s) this holiday season?

Many students are unable to return home during the holiday break, or have never experienced a Christmas in true Canadian fashion. We are looking for Lakehead University staff and faculty to welcome students into their homes over the holiday season.

Whether it’s for a formal dinner, or other holiday festivities, our students would love to spend time with you and your family this holiday season.

The available dates are December 24-28 and you can sign up at or using the QR code on the poster attached above.

We look forward to you participating in this program and helping make this a memorable holiday season for our International students staying in Thunder Bay!

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact the Lakehead International Office— Library Ground Floor, by emailing Lahama at or calling (807) 346-7848.
