"Providing rewarding Canadian homestay experiences
to international students for over a decade"
HOMESTAY ON VANCOUVER ISLAND
A FANTASTIC DESTINATION FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Vancouver Island is becoming well-known to students worldwide for having a lot to offer: a picturesque landscape, friendly people, modern facilities, small town feel, pristine natural surroundings, skillful teaching and numerous adventure opportunities.
CREATE MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES
Spending time living abroad is a fantastic opportunity for students to be immersed in a foreign culture and benefit from exposure to differing traditions, beliefs and lifestyles. These experiences can be very impactful, and a great opportunity for growth. Students often return home with a greater level of maturity and a broader world view, having made many fond memories of their time in Canada along the way.
Students and parents are very appreciative of a warm welcoming homestay. Even short stays of a couple of days can be a chance for cultural exchange, producing lasting memories that make a positive difference in a student’s life. It is very rewarding for us to see how regularly hosts and students forge relationships that continue on well into the future.
WE ARE ALWAYS SEEKING TO CONNECT
WITH QUALITY HOST FAMILIES
If you would like to earn some additional income and are able to provide a healthy environment, where students will be welcomed as a participating member of the family, please feel free to contact us for more information. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
