As your new “Canadian family”, homestay plays a pivotal role in the experience of international students.
Just as there are many different cultures and people who make up B.C. society, there are many different types of families who host international students.
Some come from different ethnic backgrounds (e.g., Indo-Canadian, French-Canadian, Chinese-Canadian), and some are non-traditional families.
The homestay coordinator in your school will work with you as you learn about your homestay family.
