When away from home, an essential part of a student’s success is having a healthy study environment that is comfortable and safe. VI HOMESTAY has been providing placement services that meet this description for over a decade.


Our homestay program has earned a reputation for providing high-quality service and for taking first-rate care of our visiting students.

At all times, we remain actively involved with our hosts, students, schools, and tour organizers - coordinating between parties, sharing schedules, providing updates, and managing events to help make things run smoothly. Hosts and students are encouraged to contact us whenever assistance is needed.​

Each of our host families has passed a thorough interview process, home inspection and criminal record check to help ensure that our students enjoy a rewarding & nurturing Canadian homestay experience.

We invite you to visit our Testimonials page to see what our clients and partners have had to say about their experience with our program. If you have any questions or would like to request more information please feel free to send us a message from the Contact Us page.
