Our Goals:

  1. Welcome international students to our city by connecting them to a warm, friendly, local volunteer. 

  2. Support international students to make an informed decision about finding a safe place in Hamilton

  3. Connect students to the various support services offered to them so you have the resource you need to succeed in your first few months in Hamilton

Welcome Liason

When coming to a new country, you have lots of decisions to make, and don't always have all the information. HIS has created "Welcome Liason" a program to pair you with a Hamilton volunteer that will welcome you to our city before you arrive. We've put together a helpful guide with information on Rental Systems, your rights as a tenant, and what neighbourhoods to live in. Sign up today for a volunteer, and be welcomed with helpful advise to your new home!
