1) There is a $3800.00 Canadian dollar / $3500.00 US dollar fee to En Famille, due at the time your child travels to begin their part of the exchange. If you welcome first, you will not pay En Famille until after the first six months of your exchange. En Famille uses this fee to host New Family Meetings and interviews in each country, attend conferences to increase awareness, interview families, visit homes, oversee on-going exchanges, and pay its employees.

2) No money changes hands between the two exchange families. Each family incurs the expenses of the exchange child living with them.

3) Other expenses you will incur: round trip airfare (price varies), student medical insurance card (approx. $225), visa fee (approx. $145).
