Vancouver Central Homestay gives international students the opportunity to live with Canadian families while they complete their education, work experience or travel. At the same time, homestay gives host families the unique opportunity to welcome new people and cultures into their homes while providing a safe and convenient place to live, helping students develop their English language skills and adapt to the Canadian lifestyle. We have placed thousands of students in homestay over the years enriching the lives of both students and our host families in our great City.
