The Homestay Program at VIC provides students with the opportunity to live with a Canadian family and is recommended for students who wish to experience Canadian culture and way of life. Canadian host families come from many different cultures. Your host family may be from China, India, Hong Kong, Europe, or any other part of the world. This is an excellent way to improve your language skills while seeing how Canadian families live. VIC collaborates with many families around New Westminster and Burnaby to provide you with a comfortable and memorable homestay experience. All families are located within commuting distance of the College. Homestay includes breakfast and dinner daily.

VIC Student Services can help to arrange a homestay for students before or after they arrive in Canada. For pricing information, see our Fees page.
