The Canadian Host Family Association encourages and assists young Canadians wishing to travel abroad to gain international agricultural experience and provides international exchange opportunities for young foreign farmers who wish to gain agricultural experience in Canada.

C.H.F.A. is a non-profit organization whose members aim for each international trainee to leave Canada with a positive view of the culture in Canada, farming, and the Canadian people.

Canadian Host Family Association creates travel and work opportunities for Canadian and international youth to receive training and guidance in areas of agriculture, agri-mix, enology, equine, horticulture and turf management which aligns itself with IEC. Placements will be on approved family farms. The participants will be enriched educationally and culturally.

This is a learning experience for both the trainee and host in agriculture.
