Family Program

There are over 180 International students with a spouse and/or children in the IO Family program at Memorial University.
With any changes in life, there are adjustments to be made. As a result, supports are available to assist international students arriving with their families to settle into a new home.

Drop by the Internationalization Office at Couglan College, room CL-2014 to speak with an advisor if you have any questions.

The Internationalization Office Family Program can provide information on:

  • Family health care
  • Schools for children
  • Daycares for children
  • Family tax benefits
  • Work and volunteer opportunities for spouses
  • ESL opportunities for spouses
  • Local community supports and services
  • Parenting resources
