Students who do not pay the placement fee and deposit at the time of application will not have a homestay arranged for them. Please note that a limited number of host families are available and that students will be placed on a first-come-first-served basis. Students who apply to the program after the application deadlines may not have host families arranged for them prior to arrival and will have to arrange for their own temporary accommodation until a host family can be found. In these situations, the following options are available:

  • staying with friends or relatives
  • staying in a hotel or dormitory in Vancouver

We encourage students to apply early to the program so that we will have time to find the best possible match for each person, and to help ensure that students will have host families immediately upon arrival in Vancouver.

Students who arrive in Vancouver before the homestay start dates listed above must find their own accommodation in Vancouver until the homestay period begins.
