We are excited to share the exchange program is back up and running after a two-year hiatus! We are currently looking for host families for the 45 students that will be visiting our community this fall.

Each year, the Town of Shikaoi sends a class of students to visit Stony Plain. Students are paired and hosted by local families and enjoy participating in family outings, cultural traditions, and everyday Canadian activities.  

To be a host family, you need to have an open heart and mind and space for two students (most students are happy to share one room). Host families do not need to know Japanese or have any previous hosting experience. All Tri-Region residents are encouraged to apply. 

The 2022 Shikaoi Student Delegation will visit Stony Plain from September 30 - October 5.
