Homestay Families Wanted
(Article in PDF Format Poster)

 

Coast Mountains School District 82 and Northwest Community College are seeking homestay host families for international students.  Students from around the world are choosing to study in beautiful and pristine northwest BC and you can play an important role in making their Canadian experience truly unforgettable.

High school and college students want to experience high-quality, personalized education while experiencing local culture, discovering the great outdoors and enjoying the safety and friendliness of smaller communities.  Help us show them our true regional hospitality by becoming a homestay family.

Living with local families helps international students immerse themselves in Canadian culture and helps in developing English language skills.  By opening your home to a student, they will experience daily life in Canada, while introducing your family to the unique opportunity to learn about another culture.  It is also the beginning of what often becomes a life-long, cross-cultural friendship.

Students will need both short and long-term homestay experiences.

For more information about becoming a host family for the International Student Homestay Program, please visit the school district’s new International Student Program website at:

Or contact our Director of Instruction for School Support, Janet Meyer at (250) 638-4480 or study@cmsd.bc.ca for assistance.
