Your Home away from Home!

Homestay promotes friendship, language learning and opportunities for cultural exchange. Local families welcome VIU University or The High School students into their homes. Hosts regularly share stories of life-long friendships that develop from these homestay experiences. Many hosts have traveled to their students' home countries to visit or for special occasions, such as weddings!

Our preferred partner for providing homestay is Canada Homestay Network.
