Holiday Dinner program

Holiday dinner program

Every December, international students who stay in Canada between school terms are invited into the homes of UVic students, staff, faculty and alumni for festive holiday dinners. It's a great opportunity for student guests to learn about the wide range of traditions found in Canada, while hosts and their families can share the generous spirit of the holiday season.

My host and her family were extremely warm and welcoming. I learned a lot about their traditional cuisines and culture.

I really love this program. Hosting the four students for dinner was a highlight of my holiday!

The Holiday Dinner Program is back this December, 2022!

After being on pause for two years, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring back this program. We look forward to connecting hosts with international students that are staying in Victoria over the winter break for a shared meal and memorable experience.

This year's Global Community Holiday Dinner Program will take place between Friday, December 16th and Thursday, December 22nd.
