Are foreign students being taken advantage of at homestays in Canada?
This week, Concordia University in Montreal was home to student protesters who say the school isn't doing enough to protect international students. They say it's because of a problem with homestays, a kind of billeting for foreign students in homes near the university. Students are told the home will be welcoming, well appointed and warm. The reality is often quite different.
