Many international students enjoy the opportunity to live with a family and share in the rich and rewarding experiences of a Canadian home life. Students can choose from a variety of locations in the city and different types of homestay plans. Homestay is a great option to help you get settled in Vancouver.
In a homestay, you will have a private bedroom in the home of a family. Generally, you will join the family for breakfast and dinner and have a lunch to take to school. Arrangements vary between families with regard to joining in family activities and the number of meals. Homestay is a very affordable living option, and will cost about $800/month (price may vary depending on meal arrangements).
Acsenda School of Management works with First Choice International Placement which offers quality homestay, airport transportation, and monitored custodial guardianship services to address the unique needs of international students. To apply for a homestay, go to First Choice’s application page and either download the application forms that you need or complete your application online. Please note that if you are completing the Custodial Guardianship Application, you will need to fax this in to First Choice International Placement directly (instructions are on the form). The placement fee for First Choice is $250.
