If you're a student interested in applying to the Langara Homestay Program please contact the Homestay Office for an application package. You will need to show a copy of your program's Letter of Acceptance in order to apply.
Please return your application with CAN $2000 to secure your Homestay placement. This amount covers the application fee ($400) as well as your first and last month's placement in the Homestay Program ($800 per month).
Please note that we also offer an airport pick-up service for an additional $75, which should be added into your initial fees at the time of application. Students wishing to organize airport pick-up must also inform the Homestay Office of their travel plans as early as possible (at least two weeks prior to arrival).
The preferred payment method for all fees is via wire transfer.
We also welcome families who are interested in becoming hosts to get in touch at any time.
When to apply
We recommend that students apply for homestay at least two months before their program start date (please visit the application deadlines page). Students are welcome to move into their homestay one week prior to the date on which they begin their program. Students arriving before this week must find their own accomodation until the homestay period begins.
Students who do not apply on time may have to find and pay for their own temporary accomodation until a suitable homestay family can be arranged for them.
If you are a student entering the LEAP Program, please indicate that you are interested in Homestay on your LEAP application.
