Share Canadian Holiday Cheer with Newcomers

Join the Holiday Host Program


We are seeking established Islanders to become Holiday Host volunteers and newcomers to Canada who would like to be matched with them in the popular PEIANC Holiday Host Program. The more the merrier!

The Holiday Host Program offers established Islanders a chance to welcome new neighbours from around the world and participate in a cultural exchange. It is a one-time short-term volunteer commitment that connects an Island family with newcomer individuals or families who want to experience Canadian seasonal traditions over the holidays (usually on a date between December 21st and January 1st).

Have extra place settings at your table for the upcoming holidays?

Invite a newcomer or newcomer family to celebrate anytime during the holiday season.

Interested in experiencing Canadian seasonal traditions?

If you are a recent newcomer and would like to join in the celebration, please let us know. Both individuals and families are welcome to join in.

To sign up as a volunteer or a guest, please contact:
