The residents’ diversity is one of the strong points of the House of Canadian Students. They come from different parts of Canada and other countries under the so-called “mixing” policy. This diversity promotes rich cultural, academic and professional exchanges.
A residents’ committee is elected at the beginning of each year. The Committee represents the House residents in the relations with the management and the Board of Directors of the House of Canadian Students.
